Our record is the result of fifty years of satisfactory 
work done by skilled craftsmen who have had years 
of study and practical experience in the special field 
of CHURCH DECORATION. 

Distinctive church interiors are not produced by chance 
but are the result of a thorough study by one who 
knows the field. A beautiful church gives its full in- 
spiration only when it is decorated in hannony with its 
style of architecture. Each church requires special 
consideration, but the results will more than surprise 
you. 

Our representative is in your locality often. Drop us 
a card and get our estimates on your church. There is 
no obligation incurred.

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENTS' COMPOSITE REPORT 

Bishop Magee, Members of the Conference, and Methodist Friends in 
Southern Illinois: 

Greetings: 

It is with a profound sense of gratitude to Almighty God for His guidance 
and blessing throughout the past year, and with a deep appreciation for the 
many courtesies and the splendid cooperation extended to us by the min- 
isters and the laymen of the Conference that we, your District Superin- 
tendents, bring this our annual report. 

We are grateful for the continued leadership and the fine brotherly 
spirit of our resident Bishop, and we extend to him our hearty welcome as 
he comes to preside over another session of our Annual Conference. We 
pledge him our loyal support in the future tasks of the Kingdom. 

We are delighted with the privilege of meeting here in Granite City for 
this Conference, this being the first time an annual session has ever been 
held in this place. The pastors and the people of this Tri City area have 
cooperated beautifully in planning and preparing for our visit. We trust 
and pray that our meeting here may leave a mighty impact for righteousness 
upon the life of this great industrial area. 

This composite report has to do primarily with the state and activities 
of the Church within the bounds of the Southern Illinois Conference. Time 
and space forbid indulgence in detailed statistical facts, interesting and 
profitable as that might be. We shall strive, therefore, to give you a general 
picture and let the Statistician and Treasurer fill in the details. 

The Ministry 

Our ministers of today live in a vastly different world to what the 
ministers did a half-century ago. In a single generation the world has 
moved from the horse and buggy stage to a streamlined era. And the 
influence of this change is to be noted in the Church and in the work of the 
Pastoi'. For instance it can be seen in the more modern trends of church 
architecture. It can be noted in the fact that the center pulpit in many places 
is giving way to the divided chancel. Many churches which gave little 
thought and consideration to more formal types of worship in the past, to- 
day have beautiful orders of worship with their processionals, entroits, 
responses, etc. Translations of the Bible in modern speech are coming to be 
very much in evidence. Church Secretaries and mimeograph machines are 
to be found in an increasing number of church offices. Directors of 
Christian Education, Ministers of Music, Leaders of Youth and Children's 
Work are being employed in ever greater numbers. 

It is not surprising that the modern minister is called upon for more 
things, that he attends more meetings, raises more money, plans and super- 
vises a bigger program than the minister of 50 years ago ever dreamed of 
doing. If John Wesley and Francis Asbury could tour one of our Con- 
ferences today and see what we are doing, they probably would not rec- 
ognize us; and yet, we believe they would approve what we are doing. The 
Church and the Ministry of this present day are gearing their program to 
the tempo and the needs of modern life. 

For the most part, our ministers have served faithfully and well during 
the past year. The records will reveal many fine accomplishments. And 
we all know, of course, that every faithful Pastor renders many services and 
does a great amount of good that is never revealed in the statistical tables. 

The general health of our ministers has been very good this year, al- 
though there have been a few instances of serious illness. We are happy to 

64 , 



REPORTS 



report that most of these have now fully recovered and only one will be 
forced to retire for health reasons. Five men have reached the retirement 
age and will ask for that relationship during this Conference. We regret to 
see these men step aside from the active ranks but wish them many years 
for their well-earned rest. 

Four ministers, two ministers' wives and one widow of a minister have 
passed to their eternal reward during the year. Appropriate Memorial 
Services were held for them in this morning's session of the Conference. 

Chaplains 

During the war, a number of our men went out from our Conference 
to serve the nation as Chaplains in its Armed Forces. Some have returned 
to the regular pastorate and are now serving within the Conference again. 
A few have transferred to other Conferences, while others remain in the 
Service, serving in hospitals or on special assignments overseas. We honor 
these men for their noble service. We rejoice in the return of those who 
have come back and will welcome the others at such time as they may be 
able to return. And for all of them we lift a prayer for God's guidance and 
continued blessing. 

Enlistment and Training 

There is an urgent need for new recruits within the ranks of the ministry. 
For a number of years, men have been retiring and dying at a much faster 
rate than young men have been entering the ministry. The cumulative effect 
is a desperate shortage of ministers today. This year there were 243 pastoral 
charges in the Southern Illinois Conference. Only 135 of these were served 
by regular members of the Conference: 6 were served by men on trial; and 
108 were served by Supply Pastors. We honor these men who have stepped 
in to aid in this emergency; we recognize that there will always be a place 
and a need for some Accepted Supply Pastors; but we also know that this 
is not the way to build a strong Conference and a strong leadership for the 
Church. 

The situation calls for a continued and vigorous program of ministerial 
enlistment. We commend the achievements along this line in our Summer 
Institutes and in the Stewardship Program this year. We recommend that 
this type of work be continued in whatever channels the opportunity comes 
and that the "follow-up program" for recruitment, recently inaugurated, be 
carried out faithfully and intelligentlv. We wish to commend to our Board 
of Ministerial Training for the excellent service they are rendering in the 
training of our young ministers, and for the help and inspiration thev bring 
to our graduate preachers. We wish to express our high appreciation for 
the Colle<re of Christian Life held for the first time this year at Urbana. We 
urge our Pastors to take full advantage of all these opportunities for growth 
and enrichment. 

We note with considerable satisfaction the increasing number of our 
young men who are going away for advanced training and preparation in 
our Seminaries. And yet, at the same time, we note with alarm the large 
number of these who do not return to serve in our own Conference. Several 
factors seem to contribute to this situation: 

1. Until within recent years, young men have not been encouraged too 
much to return to their own Conference. 

2. The salary level of our Conference has been below that of many 
other Conferences where trained men have been sought after. 

3. Higher pension ratings in other Conferences have proved to be an 
added incentive to young men to go elsewhere, giving them a greater sense 
of security for the future. 

65 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



4. And, in recent years, Conferences that meet in the Spring have had 
a decided advantage over those meeting in the Fall in securing Seminary 
graduates. 

It is our belief that our Conference should do several things to help 
remedy this situation: 

1. We should encourage our young men, who plan to enter the min- 
istry, to get all the training they possibly can. God needs our best and the 
responsibilities of this age demand it more and more. But we should also 
encourage these young men to return and give the Church within the 
bounds of their own Conference the benefit of their training and their 
ability. 

2. The Conference needs to do something about the establishment of a 
minimum salary level. While salaries generally have increased and some 
very substantially, yet the fact remains that the ministers in some charges 
still receive pitifully low salaries at a time when the cost of living is tre- 
mendously high. This ought not to be the case. 

3. The Conference should begin to strengthen its pension system very 
substantially. This is already over-due. 

4. Finally, it is our conviction that a Spring Conference would be of 
great advantage in meeting this problem of a shortage of ministers. 

Our Parsonage Homes 

The Parsonage Home is of special importance in the modem church 
program. Around it centers many church activities and interests, especially 
in the smaller communities where parish houses and social rooms are not 
available. The modern pastor and wife not only keep the home-fires burn- 
ing for their own children but also for the children of God who come for 
business meetings, social gatherings, counsel and guidance. These parsonage 
homes are not only castles where queens and their children dwell safely 
but where others seek solace and security in their spiritual life. Into some 
of our parsonage homes, as in other homes, babies have been born this year; 
other children have been growing up; sickness has come, sometimes severe, 
and even death. But still these homes have functioned for the furtherance 
of the Kingdom of God. We sometimes wonder what the Church and the 
people would do if this influence was removed from their communities. 

We are greatly concerned for the comfort and physical well-being of 
our parsonage families. We believe that every church should make its 
parsonages modem and as convenient as possible, that it should be kept in 
a good state of repair, decorated and made as attractive and comfortable as 
any of the better homes in the community. We are glad to report that the 
majority of our churches do this, although some parsonages are desperately 
in need of attention. A lot of churches are now providing kitchen ranges 
of one type or another for the parsonage. Most of them provide coverings 
for the kitchen floor, window shades, and the heating system. This should 
by all means become a standard practice. We call this to the attention of 
our laymen and particularly Parsonage Committees. 

Three churches have purchased new parsonages this year, two have 
built new ones, and at least one more is preparing to build a new parsonage. 
Many have reported parsonage improvements during the year- 

The Lay Program 

Methodism has always been vibrant with spiritual strength and has 
moved with dynamic power and irresistible force in her passion for ex- 
tending the Kingdom of Christ. This probably was never more true than 
it is today and one vitally interested, assuming an ever greater responsibility, 
and participating more and more in its work. This is as it should be. 



REPORTS 



The Laymen's Program in our Conference moves forward from year to 
year with increased importance. Our Lay Leader and his Associates in the 
Districts and Sub-district Groups have given splendid leadership. 

Laymen's Day was observed in most of the churches, with the laymen 
taking charge of the services on that Sunday. Many of our men's groups 
are conducting the Sunday evening service once a month. Most of the 
organized men's groups have regular meetings once a month for fellowship 
and study or a special program of one kind or another. A number of local 
groups have reported special projects for the year, either in the interest of 
the local church or some Conference enterprise; frequently both. Quite a 
few of our Sub-district Groups have regular Men's meetings once in a 
quarter. The annual Men's Rally was held in each District again this year 
and the laymen have taken an active part in the Stewardship Program. 

The leadership and inspiration at the Conference and District levels 
must continue until it reaches into every local church. There are still many 
churches where the men have not been sufficiently stirred and challenged 
to produce any special activity on their part. And as long as this is true, 
the Church can not do its best work and reach as many people in those 
communities as it should. 

Woman's Society of Christian Service 

Since the day when the three Marys stood by the cross on which the 
Son of God was crucified, women, for the most part, have been faithful and 
devoted to the Cause of Christ. It is not surprising, therefore, that the 
women of Southern Illinois carry on their work with such devotion and 
loyalty. 

The Conference and District Officers have promoted their work in a 
vigorous manner and we think the reports of the local societies will reveal 
some very fine achievements. The women have also taken a very active 
part in the Stewardship Program. In many of the smaller churches, the 
women's organizations supplement the pastor's salary and take care of most 
of the improvements. We are glad to note the number of societies that 
are giving missionary training and guidance to the children and youth. 
We call upon others to remember that this is also a part of your responsibil- 
ity. And, while the majority of our churches do have organized Women's 
Societies, we must not forget that there are still quite a few that do not 
have and there are many others which might well bring their business and 
professional women together in Wesleyan Service Guilds. There is still 
work to be done. 

Youth Work 

The Methodist Movement has always been a youth movement. From its 
beginning at Oxford, where a small group of young men so conducted them- 
selves that they were dubbed the "Holy Club" and later the "Methodists," 
through the famous Christmas Conference in Baltimore, when 2/3 of the 
preachers who came to meet Thomas Coke were under 30 years of age, 
through the early years of the missionary movement, to the present day, 
Methodism has been youth-minded- A movement that has had the long, 
long thoughts of youths so close to its heart could not help being forward- 
looking, vigorous, and prophetic. 

We are proud of our young people in Southern Illinois, and the work 
they are doing. The Conference-wide Rallies have been productive of 
much inspiration and a fine sense of unity and fellowship among the youth 
of the Conference. The District Conventions have brought about some 
challenging plans and goals for the coming year. Regular youth meetings 
are held in most of the sub-district groups with splendid interest and at- 
tendance. A large enrollment was reported in the Mid-winter Institutes. 
Our Summer Institutes were well attended and did an excellent piece of 
work. We are all conscious of the problems that center in such large In- 

67 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



stitutes and we look forward to additional Institutes in other parts of i-he 
Conference. 

The youth work in many of our local churches has been of an ex- 
ceptionally fine nature. Many of these groups carry on extensive programs 
with good interest and good results. And yet, we fear, that in too many 
instances the local church is not challenging and not reaching the youth 
of the community and even of our own Methodist homes as well as they 
should. We believe the greatest need and the place for greatest empjiasis 
in our youth program is in the local church. 

Conference Institutions 

The Southern Illinois Conference has five institutions of which we are 
justly proud and through which we are rendering a most valuable Christian 
service. Since detailed reports will be made by each of these, we simply 
mention them here in general terms. 

The Orphans' and Children's Home at Mt. Vernon continues to serve 
unfortunate children in a splendid way, giving them a home and Christian 
care. The home is in the best condition it has been in for many years, and 
Rev. Sowers and his staff are doing a marvelous piece of work. 

The Old Folks' Home at Lawrenceville continues its ministry in a very 
fine way, providing a home and a wonderful Christian environment for a 
large family of people in the evening time of life. Brother Young is un- 
tiring in his labors for the home and faithful in his management of its af- 
fairs. He has a good staff. 

Holden Hospital at Carbondale is rendering a great healing ministry 
under the supervision of Miss Pangburn. Dr. Hall has done a splendid 
piece of work in eliminating the debt on that institution. After ten years of 
service, Miss Graves resigned as Superintendent of Alton Memorial Hospital 
and Mr. Harry F. Tubergen came as the new Superintendent in April. He 
has made an outstanding beginning as the administrator of this magnificent 
hospital. 

All these institutions represent the Church and Methodism in particular. 
The way they represent us depends largely on the interest we take in them 
and the support we give them. Let us stand by them in a loyal way. 

Then, we should like to speak a little more at length of McKendree 
College. The Methodist concern for education is traditional. "Give Youth 
a Chance!" is a favorite Methodist idea, if not a slogan. John Wesley himself 
established Kingswood School. Before the Conference adjourned at Lovely 
Lane Chapel in 1784, it had voted to found a Christian college, and the 
young preachers who were getting only $64 a year had taken up a collection 
to start the first building. Cokesbury College later burned to the ground, 
as did its successor, but Asbury and those other early leaders were not 
defeated. 

Many Methodist academies and colleges were founded during the first 
part of the 19th century and today Methodism has 139 colleges and univer- 
sities, 10 graduate schools of theology, 3 training schools, and a number of 
junior colleges and secondary schools. Our own McKendree was one of 
those schools founded back there more than a century ago and through all 
these years she has made a rich contribution to the Church, the nation, 
and the world. But today she faces perhaps the greatest challenge of her 
entire history. 

Dr. Bracy's report will show a large increase in enrollment the past 
year and the prospects are favorable for an even larger enrollment next 
year. The financial situation is steadily improving. The Faculty is gradually 
being strengthened. Many needed repairs and improvements are under 



REPORTS 



way. However, to really meet the challenge of this new day, we need to 
become fully accredited; we need at least two new buildings; we need to 
enlarge our faculty and strengthen the work in several places. Conse- 
quently, the Campaign for Accreditation, Buildings and Endowment has 
been launched, 'ine Conference has endorsed this program and voted to 
give its full cooperation. Ihis will be one of our major tasks in this coming 
year. In order to succeed in this, we feel that we as ministers and laymen 
of Southern Illinois need to recapture something of the spirit of Wesley, 
and of Asbury, and others who raised up such institutions in the beginning. 
We must convince ourselves, first of all, of the great need for Christian 
Higher Education, and then go out to convince others. We need to remind 
ourselves that the hope of the Church and of Democracy and of civilization 
rests largely in these Christian schools. We must depend upon them to 
train our ministers, our missionaries, and other workers in the church. From 
them must go a great host of teachers into our public school systems, im- 
bued with Christian ideals. From these centers must go yotmg men of 
Christian integrity, young men dominated by Christian ideals and principles 
who will become civic leaders in local communities, officials in the nation, 
and statesmen in world affairs. From these schools must go Christian 
young people who will set up Christian homes throughout the nation. It 
was no idle statement when Bishop Lewis one time said, "We may as well 
give up our churches as to give up our Christian colleges." 

We call upon our people to pray for this institution and this campaign, 
to inform themselves of the needs and the possibilities of McKendree, and 
then get behind the President, and the Board, and the Faculty, and help 
make this great effort a glorious success. Ihe day of idle talk is over; the 
time of criticism is past; the hour for consecrated action is upon us. Let 
us move forward, under God, with courage and with confidence. 

Other Phases of the Work 

The general program of Christian Education, under the leadership of 
our Executive Secretary, has made notable progress this year. Dr. Harris, 
with the cooperation of the Board of Education, is strengthening the total 
work of Christian training and looking to the future with vision and courage. 
In our judgment, one of the greatest needs of the educational program in the 
local church is the right kind of officers and teachers, men and women of 
unquestioned Christian character and at the same time, capable and pre- 
pared for their responsibility in the church. We also need a greater spirit 
of cooperation on the part of parents. 

Our Conference Board of Evangelism and its Chairman continue to give 
splendid leadership in the field of evangelism. Reports indicate that 2444 
people were received into the church this year on confession of faith, and 
203i were received by transfer. Quite a bit of needed stirvey work has 
been done in certain communities and one new field has been opened up 
through the assistance of our Missionary-evangelist. We have great need 
for fimds within the Conference to aid in the development of these new 
projects. 

Giving to World Service and Conference Benevolences has increased 
$14,011 this year over last year, although the division is a little different this 
year. Our churches were asked at the beginning of the year to accept a 10% 
increase in their goal and most of them did. There is still need for a great 
deal of cultivation and work to be done at this point, as we shall point out a 
bit later. 

Pastors' salaries have been increased for next year in a half to two- 
thirds of the Charges. Many of our churches are doing remarkably well in 
their ministerial support now but there are others which are still pitifully 
low, and the sad feature is that some of these are not the least bit concerned 
about the matter. 

69 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



Extensive property improvements have been made during the year. 
Three new^ churches have either been completed or are in the process of 
being constructed. Additional units have been added to several and at least 
six new organs have been installed during the year. Notable progress has 
been made by a few of our churches that still were carrying large debts, in 
fact two of these are now entirely out of debt. We rejoice in all this pro- 
gress cind improvement. 

The East St. Louis District is in the process of erecting a lovely new 
District Parsonage in Lebanon. It is well planned and ideally situated and 
we think every church will be very proud of this residence when com- 
pleted. We dare to hope that other Districts in the Conference will follow 
our example. 

The Third Year of the Crusade 

The response to the challenge of The Crusade for Christ leads us to 
believe that Methodism is still taking her Kingdom responsibilities seriously. 
Following unification, fear was expressed in some quarters lest we as 
Methodists settle back, content to boast of our great numbers and our 
glorious history, and lose the passion and the power to achieve new tri- 
umphs according to our ability. But in the first year of the Crusade our 
people poured over $27,000,000 into the treasury of the Church to help re- 
build and rehabilitate the war-torn world and to carry on the work of the 
Church's planning; this in addition to our regular giving. Last year, through 
the Program of Evangelism, over a million persons were won to Christ and 
the Church, and over 600 new preaching places were opened. This year 
the Program of Christian Stewardship has been carried forward with equal 
vigor and interest on the part of ministers and laymen alike. 

We are glad to know that our Conference has had its part in this Cru- 
sade for Christ and made its contribution to the total effort. The results may 
not be all that many of us would have liked but we have done well and 
God only knows the total good that has come from this great effort. 

The final results on this year's Stewardship Program will not be known 
until the end of the calendar year but preliminary reports reveal real 
progress. Just after Easter, we had 4,218 people recorded as tithers, 5,113 
recorded as proportionate givers in other amounts, 5,522 people had ded- 
icated a definite portion of their time and talent to Christian service, and 
345 youth had given themselves for full-time Christian service. 

During this year a rather comprehensive study has been made of the 
giving to the current expenses budgets and to the missionary and benevo- 
lent budgets of all the churches in every District. Some rather startling 
facts have been discovered. On an average, not more than 2/3 of the 
membership of our churches support the local budget regularly and a lot 
of these give no ways near their ability to give. Less than 50% of our 
membership give to World Service and Conference Benevolences regularly 
and the majority of these do not give in proportion to their ability. That 
is startling when you stop to think about it. 

That 30 to 35% of the members of our churches who are not supporting 
the local budget regularly and that 50% or more who are not contributing 
to the missionary program of the church is too great a challenge for us to 
ignore. We must do something about it and we are glad to report something 
is being done about it. 

In the first place, we think the Church itself is partly to blame for this 
situation. Too many churches have no definite, business-like, financial 
program. They set up no budget; they never inform their membership and 
constituency of the financial needs and program of the church; they never 
make an every-member canvass to lay these plans before the people in- 
dividually and to challenge them with their own personal responsibility. 

70 



REPORTS 



We have business men in some of our churches who would never tolerate 
such poor practices in their own business but who seem little concerned 
about the financial program of their church. We have some Finance Com- 
mittees who seem to think their efficiency is to be determined by the way 
they hold down the budget rather than by their vision of what the Church 
might do for the salvation and enrichment of the world and their ability to 
find the ways and means for getting it done. We need men and women 
on our Official Boards and on our Finance Committees who have a deep, 
earnest interest in the Kingdom of Christ, who have vision and faith and a 
sense of moral daring. 

These facts need to be called to the attention of our people and are be- 
ing asked to set up budgets, if they have not been doing that; establish 
sound business-like procedures; inform their people of their program; 
make an every-member canvass; and get the church on a good sound 
financial basis. We need "Religion in our Business" and we also need 
"Business In Our Religion." This has been accepted as a part of the 
Stewardship Program and reports are beginning to come in which indicate 
fine progi-ess is being made. We call upon our Pastors and our Official 
Members to persist in their efforts until success comes. And let none of us 
lose sight of the fact that this whole effort must be undergirded with a high 
sense of Chi'istian Stewardship if we are to succeed in the fullest sense of 
the word. 

The Crusade Must Continue 

Stewardship cultivation must continue. It is essential to Christian 
living and to the extension of the Kingdom of Christ. As one committee 
reported to the District Conference, "Christian Stewardship is the way to 
world redemption from war, racial animosities, the liquor evil, gambling, 
labor and industrial strife, the menace of atheistic totalitarianism, crime, 
broken homes, immorality, poverty, ignorance, fear and hunger, etc." We 
must be deeply in earnest about it. * 

Evangelism must continue to be a passion within the heart-life of the 
Church. As we look out upon the sin and waywardness of humanity, we 
should pray for mankind as though everything depended upon God. Then, 
we should arise from our knees and go out and work, week after week and 
month after month, as though everything depended upon us. Evangelism 
is a "MUST" in the program of every real church. 

Finally, we must increase our Church School enrollment and attendance 
during this coming year. This will be the culminating phase of the Crusade 
for Christ. The fact that over 28,000,000 people under 25 years of age in the 
United States are not enrolled in any church school gives startling evidence 
that we need to do something about this matter. Goals have been set and 
plans will be inaugurated in the near future and we believe the people of 
Southern Illinois will give themselves to this program in the same spirit 
they have the other phases of the Crusade. We call upon Pastors, local 
Boards of Education, Church School officers and teachers, sponsors and 
leaders of children's and youth work, parents and others, to rally to this 
great cause and let us really Crusade for Christ in this new conference 
year. The Crusade Must Continue! 

Miscellaneous 

We wish to just mention two or three other matters, not lightly but only 
briefly. We are glad to know that the Christian Advocate is going into so 
many Methodist homes. We feel every Methodist ought to subscribe for his 
official church paper and then read it. This is needful if we are to be in- 
formed churchmen and good servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. We com- 
mend Dr. Roy L. Smith for the excellent paper he continues to produce for 
us. 

We rejoice in the wide use of The Upper Room among our people.

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



Never was there a time when we as individuals and as famiUes needed to 
take time for prayer and meditation and the devotional reading of God's 
Word more than we do today. We earnestly urge our people to maintain 
family altars and to participate in the mid-week services at the church for 
prayer and the study of the Scriptures. 

We are grateful for the use that is being made of the Radio by the 
Church within our Conference. We feel, however, that the Radio offers 
us a far greater challenge than we are meeting and we recommend some 
earnest thought and study on this matter. 

We are glad to know that new interest and attention is being centered 
upon the church in the rural areas. We recognize the need and the problem 
that exists there. We are also aware that the solution is not an easy one, 
particularly in view of some of the things we mentioned in our discussion 
on the Mmistry. But we pledge our best effort in helping the Church 
and the Conference to serve mankind most effectively whether it be in the 
country, the small town or the larger city. We must adjust our programs 
and direct our ministry in every community to the needs of the people in 
that particular place. 

Change In Superintendents 

Two members of the Cabinet will retire from their office at this Con- 
ference because their term has expired. Therefore, the other two Superin- 
tendents wish to express their appreciation for the privilege of working with 
these men this year. They have shown a fine brotherly spirit, and a most 
cooperative and helpful attitude in our common problems and respons- 
ibihties. We also wish to express our appreciation for the two men who 
have been named as their successors and to welcome them to their new 
places of leadership in our Conference. May the Lord bless all of us and 
help us to be a blessing. 

In Conclusion 

In conclusion, may we say that this is a great day for the Church of 
Jesus Christ. She occupies a peculiar position and an almost unparalleled 
opportunity. Think of what significance it is that when the scientists re- 
leased atomic energy, they almost immediately became frightened at what 
they had done; and they have turned to the leaders of the Church for sal- 
vation. They know that only when men are redeemed are they safe with 
this amazing power. 

It is our mission to proclaim, the message of salvation, not only for the 
individual person, but for society. It is our business to help Christ make his 
Kingdom real in all of life- This will not be easy for secularism is arrayed 
against the Christian effort. People and nations depend upon the power of 
force rather than the power of the Spirit. Class prejudice, racial hatred, 
and international fear and misunderstanding are abroad. The influence of 
the liquor traffic and its attendant evils are widespread. We face a dis- 
integration of American home-life, such as was never known, because of 
hasty marriages, gross infidelity, adult and child delinquency, and easy 
divorce laws. We can not ignore the fact that in our academic life, religion 
is all too often tolerated as an "extra." Gambling has reached such stagger- 
ing proportions, we are told, that one hundred times as much money is 
spent on gambling in America as we Christians spend in evangelizing the 
world. It is not an easy day but it is a most challenging day. 

We of the Methodist Church have a vast organization and mighty po- 
tential forces to lay at the feet of our Lord. Perhaps the youngest of the 
major denominations, Methodism has outstripped most of the others and 
stands today as the largest Protestant group in America. Her missionary 
program embraces the whole world and her activities in this field exceed 
that of any other church. No church excels her in the realm of education. 
Her colleges and universities outnumber those of other denominations and 

72 



REPORTS 



stand among the highest in accreditment and endowment. Her Publishing 
House is the largest in the world. There are more than 41,000 Methodist 
churches scattered over the nation and some of these will compare with the 
most beautiful in the land. God grant that we may keep the vision, that 
we may be true to the ideals and the principles that have helped to make 
our Church what it is today. God help us never to settle down to running 
an institution but keep us a living, growing fellowship. 

Let it be said that we rejoice in the ecumenical fellowship that is grow- 
ing today. We are glad to know that various churches are learning, more 
and more, to work together in a spirit that transcends our differences. In 
this fact lies a greater hope for all mankind. 

We believe in the Church. We know that it is not a man-made in- 
stitution but that it is a living fellowship in Christ and can only be a creative 
power and redemptive agency in and through His followers. If the Church 
is to meet the challenge of this day, we, her ministers and her laity must 
walk close to God and must give priority to the things of the Spirit. 

Let us face the new year with great faith, high hope, and a deep sense 
of consecration. 

(Signed) 

H. G. HURLEY. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MINISTERIAL TRAINING 

The 27th Annual Session of the Pastors' School was held on the 
Campus of McKendree College June 16-26, 1947, with 40 undergraduate 
pastors, 68 ordained pastors and 12 faculty members present. 

The spirit of fellowship experienced, the type of class work carried on 
was of exceptional high order. 

The new intensive class work of the first week permitting the under- 
graduates to attend all special lectures of the Graduate classes was appre- 
ciated and very profitable. 

Dr. Rockwell C. Smith, professor Rural Sociology and the Rural Min- 
istry from Gan-ett Biblical Institute led the school into new appreciation 
of the work of the ministry and presented practical helpful facts concern- 
ing our task. 

Dr. Henry M. Johnson of Chandler School of Theology, Emory Univer- 
sity presented the work of Religious Education and The problems of Pas- 
toral psychology to appreciative audiences. 

Dr. Dawson C. Bryan from Houston, Texas, brought to the school by 
the Board of Evangelism, led in the work of this great field in a profitable 
way and preached each evening of the second week to appreciative audi- 
ences. 

The College, led by its genial and efficient President, Dr. Carl Bracy, 
contributed in no small way to this most successful school. 

The work of the faculty in conducting open forum on the great subject 
of Methodism at the evening services of the first week, and the devotional 
addresses were most interesting. 

The support of the Commission on World Service in making possible 
the week of graduate lecturers was greatly appreciated.

THE ANNUAL REPORT BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Methodist Church, Southern Illinois Conference 

Report Of Executive Secretary, October 1, 1946-August 1, 1947 

We began our work as Executive Secretary of the Southern Illinois 
Conference on October 1, 1946. Although we had majored in this field of 
the ministry, the appointment to the office came with considerable sur- 
prise. We have tried to analyse the greatest need of the conference. We 
have been cautious in promoting the program in order that we make no 
serious mistakes that might jeopardize the work in the future. Our sur- 
vey of the field has convinced us that the most imperative need is in the 
area of Leadership Education. We suffer from a dearth of both lay and 
clerical leadership in the field of Christian Education. Our major empha- 
sis in the future will be to develop this leadership. We cannot make much 
progress in Christian Education imless we develop a greater number of 
trained leaders. 

74 



REPORTS 



The response to our efforts have been exceedingly fine. The pastors 
have opened their pulpits and cooperated splendidly in promoting the 
work of Christian Education. We have not been able to get to all the 
churches that have asked us to come. We have tried to group our meet- 
ings and workers conferences so as to avoid as much duplication in travel 
as possible. We hope to reach a greater number of churches next year. 

McKendree College has been very generous to provide space for our 
office, into which we have just moved. We have been adding equipment 
to the office so that we can be of greater service to the Conference. 

I wish to express my appreciation to the Board of Education and the 
District Superintendents for their splendid spirit of cooperation in this 
field of work. The success or failure of the work of Christian Education 
in the conference rests first with the pastor, then the District Superinten- 
dents, we try to furnish the technique for the promotion of the work* and 
do all that we can of the actual work. 

The following is a record of most of the activities of your Executive 
during the last nine months: 

40 Leadership Training Enterprises. 

Eldorado Institute 1250 

McKendree Institute 525 

Joint Leadership School 100 

15 Leadership Schools 1100 

10 Mid-Year Institutes 1000

Mailed out 48000 pieces of literature, distributed 52000 in meetings. 
In nine months traveled 21272 miles doing this work.. 

We are more than ever convinced of the need for a full time Execu- 
tive for the Board of Education. Our time is fully occupied at this work, 
often fourteen and sixteen hours a day and seven days a week. We have 
not taken the time for a vacation this year. When we see how white the 
fields are for harvest we are challenged to every ounce of energy we have. 
We love God, we love the work, and we love people. Our greatest desire 
is to see more and better results in this very important field of the min-

The Rally Day Offering is one of our main sources of income. Last 
year nearly every church in the Conference contributed to the Rally Day 
Fund. The Discipline requires that an offering for Rally Day be taken in 
each church. Last year the Annual Conference voted to set as a minimum 
goal a sum equal to ten cents per enrolled member in each church school- 
This is the recommendation of the Board of Education to the Annual Con- 
ference again this year. 

We do not wish to impose on the pastors and their wives for our enter- 
tainment when we come to the churches of the Conference. We feel vhat 
the Board should pay its way and that we be of the greatest service to 
the Conference we can. Let every church do its utmost in the matter of 
financing the program of Christian Education and perhaps in the near 
future we can employ a full time Youth Worker. 

VISITORS TO THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS 

Garrett 

Dr. Hubert Hurley, a graduate of Garrett has visited the school during 
the last year and reported a good year at the Seminary. He reported more 
young men there in preparation for the ministry than ever before- This 
is good news when we are facing such a shortage of trained men for ihe 
ministry. The Board of Education and School of Ministerial Training urges 
visits to all our men in seminary and to encourage them to return to 
Southern Illinois Conference upon their completion of their work. 

Iliff 

Dr. C. C. Bracy, President of McKendree College, visited Iliff this past 
year and gave a splendid report of what is going on there. We encourage 
the attendance of our young men who are graduating from college to attend 
one of our Theological Schools. 

Wesley Fundation At Urbana 

It is encouraging to see the splendid work that is being done by this 
institution on the campus at the University of Illinois. We have a very fine 
plant there and Dr. Paul Burt is furnishing splendid leadership for our 
Methodist Young People who attend the University. This is truly "A home 
away from home," for multitudes of young people who are away from home 

76 



REPORTS 



for the first time. Through the counselling of Dr. Burt and his associates, 
they have been able to help young people who were homesick and dis- 
couraged to remain in school. Gospel teams and Friendship groups go out 
from the Wesley Foundation to nearby churches to hold religious services 
in needy places. Credit Bible courses are given to large numbers of stu- 
dents. Fellowship is one of the majors of Wesley Foundation, '""f the 18,000 
students enrolled in the University 3000 have expressed a Methodist pre- 
ference. This challenges us to greater effort to halp develop these poten- 
tial leaders into efficient churchmen. The erection of a new sanctuary 
seems to be imperative to providing adequate worship facilities for the 
students, faculty members and membership of Trinity Church. 

Student Christian Foundation At Carbondale 

The Student Christian Foundation at Carbondale is an Interdenomina- 
tional organization whose purpose is: "The Student Christian Foundation of 
Southern Illinois Normal University consists of groups of students and 
faculty of various races and creeds united by a common loyalty to Jesus 
Christ. In the fellowship of the Christian Church they seek to understand 
the will of God through worship, study, and action, and strive to lealize 
it both in personal living and in working together toward a new society." 
The Foundation cooperates with the constituent denominations in their 
missionary and student programs. It sends out deputation teams to nearby 
churches to assist in religious and youth programs. It helps to minister to 
the lives of all on the campus who avail themselves of its services. One of 
the richest contributions to the total student life of the campus was Re- 
ligious Emphasis Week. Outstanding religious leaders of several denomina- 
tions assisted in this program. Credit courses are also taught in the Foun- 
dation. It also has furnished wholesome social and recreational oppor- 
tunities for the students of the campus. We deplore the lack of attendance 
by a larger number of students. 

Leadership Education 

One of the imperative needs of the Conference is more and better lay 
leaders. The Board of Education is attempting to solve this need by the 
development of more trained leaders. This past year we have gained eight 
newly accredited deans, ten newly accredited instructors in addition to 
seventeen others who have been previously accredited. Our ambition is to 
increase our accredited instructors to the point where we can set up an 
Accredited Leadership School in every Sub-District of the Conference and 
staff it with our own accredited teachers. There have been several hun- 
dred Credit or Course Cards issued to those who have attended classes 
and schools where accreditled teachers have taught. 

Our most successful enterprise this year was our Conference Leader- 
ship School sponsored jointly by the Woman's Society of Christian Service 
and the Board of Education. We had 120 enrolled in classes, and 114 course 
cards were issued, that means that some took more than one credit course. 
There were eighty individual students and faculty members enrolled in the 
school. 

There were a number of Epworth Training Enterprises, some of them 
were accredited and some were not. There were well over 1090 in these 
enterprises. Then some of the Local Churches carried out non-credit en- 
terprises that will enrich the leadership work in the local church. 

Daily Vacation Bible Schools 

During the month of May there were eight Daily Vacation Bible 
School Coaching Conferences held. 275 were enrolled in these conferences. 
These meetings were not supported as they should have been, but those 
who attended testified to the splendid help they received. Next year we 
are planning a similar series of meetings. To the present time 110 schools 
have reported an enrollment of 7100 pupils. More complete reports will 

77 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



be had at conference time. This is becoming a very valuable phase of our 
Christian Education Program, hundreds of children and youth make de- 
cisions for Christ and are converted in these schools. 

Methodist Youth Fellowship Institutes 

The Eldorado Institute was held July 7-12. There was a total of 1250 
enrolled including faculty and sponsors. There were 71 conversions, and 
79 full time life service decisions. H. M. Cady was elected as Dean for next 
year. 

The McKendree Institute was held August 11-16. There was a total of 
625 enrolled including faculty and sponsors. There were 102 conversions, 
28 reclamations, and 23 full time life work decisions. Dale Harmon was 
elected dean of McKendree for next year. 

The Youth Division Council is working toward a closer coordination of 
the work of our Institutes. We are planning for an Intermediate Camp 
for next year, this will help to reduce the number of intermediates in our 
Institutes. There is the possibility of the organization of another Institute 
within the bounds of the Olney District to save travel distance and the 
overcrowding of the present institutes. 

Young Adult Institute 

On June 27-28-29 a Young Adult Institute was held at McKendree 
College. Although the attendance was not large we accomplished some 
real progress in our Conference Young Adult Work. Dr. Leo Rippy of the 
Adult Division at Nashville was present and rendered valuable assistance. 
Paul Stevens has been elected as Director of Young Adult Work within the 
Adult Division and Miss Gladys Tedley of Carbondale was elected Young 
Adult President of the Conference. Plans are going forward for the com- 
plete organization of this work in the conference. It is a very fruitful and 
potent field. 

College Of Christian Life 

One of the most significant meetings of the year was the College of 
Christian Life held at Urbana, July 21-25. Fifty-five of our ministers at- 
tended this enterprise. It was a period of fellowship, inspiration and in- 
struction. Bishop J. Ralph Magee was present throughout and his splendid 
leadership and fellowship was an inspiration to all. More was accomplished 
to bring together in the spirit of unity of the three conferences that compose 
the Chicago Area in one week than has been accomplished in the past 
quarter of a century. The School was both refreshing and a refresher to 
those who attended. Next year we expect many more from this conference 
to attend. 

Pastors' School 

Under the genial leadership of Dean Todd and Registrar Schwarzlose 
we had one of the best Pastors' Schools this year that we have had for 
several years- The first week was devoted intensively to class work with 
the undergraduates in the course of study, the second week was devoted 
to lectures by outstanding leaders and forum and discussion periods to 
formally review what was done in the lecture hours. This program proved 
very successful. 

Crusade For Christ 

This, the last year of this quadrennium, and the Crusade for Christ is to 
be devoted to an emphasis upon Church School Enrollment and Attendance. 
Our goal is two million new members in our Church Schools and the en- 
listment of 220,000 new workers and leaders in the Church School. This 
means an approximate gain of one-third over our present enrollment. We 
are already making plans for reaching our goal in Southern Illinois. We 
have sent out survey cards to get the goal for our conference by districts. 
We have set the week of September 22-28 as Christian Education Week, and 
September 28 as Rally Day. This is to be followed up by a month of in- 

78 



REPORTS 



tensive visitation in the homes of the Church School members and con- 
stituents to enroll every available person in our Church School. Each 
Division of the Church School is to put forth a strenuous effort to realize 
their goal. If you want to know what your responsibility is in realizing this 
goal, take your present enrollment and add thirty-three and one-third per 
cent gain to that figure. Materials are already going out from the Crusade 
office to assist in this campaign. Avail yourself of all this material. You 
will find it very helpful. District and sub-district meetings will be held 
to promote this work. Get as many of your workers to attend these meet- 
ings as you can. We will succeed here in Southern Illinois. 

Youth Division Report 

The Youth Work under the leadership of R. J. Weiss and Paul Sims has 
gone forward this past year. The Annual Conference meeting was a success. 
The Mid-Year Rally at Centralia was also very successful. H. R. Bennett 
was the speaker, and constructive business was taken care of by the con- 
ference. The District Conventions were well attended although the repre- 
sentation was not as good as it should have been. The Institutes have been 
reported elsewhere in this report. The Leadership School at Clear Lake, 
Iowa, was attended by 13 youth and adult leaders. The budget of this 
division has been increased to provide for better development and pro- 
motion of the Youth work. 

Children's Division 

The work of the Children's Division of the Conference seems to be 
showing increasing interest. The past three years has been a course given 
in Children's work in the Conference Leadership School at McKendree 
College. Last November the director of Children's work attended the 
meeting of the National Methodist Christian Education Conference at Grand 
Rapids, Mich. This was a very fine and helpful meeting. In January ihe 
Executive Secretary had a four day itinerary in the Conference, one day 
in each district, with Miss Emma Jane Kramer of the General Board* of 
Education of Nashville, Tenn., as a special Children's Worker. She was vei-y 
helpful and the meetings were well attended. Many expressed a desire to 
have similar meetings next year. The last of April and the first of May 
we held eight district meetings in the interest of the Daily Vacation Bibls 
School work. Mrs. Lacquement and Mrs. Webster of our own Conference 
assisted in the Children's work in these conferences. As a result, over 
110 D. V. B. S. have been reported and 7100 pupils reported in those schools. 

MRS. HOMER HERRIN. 

Adult Division 

The most significant enterprise within the Adult Division this year was 
the launching of the Young Adult Conference meeting and organization. 
This is a very fruitful and potent group within the church and needs to be 
cultivated and encouraged for the church of the next generation is within 
this group. Plans are going forward for the complete organization of this 
group throughout the conference. It is the hope of this division that there 
be more adults enlisted in the Church School program. It is a fruitful field 
for the securing of an increase in enrollment. 

McKendree College 

This has been one of the most successful years for McKendree College 
during the past decade. The summary of attendance reveals we had 353 
unrepeated in our enrollment in all departments and classes of the college. 
The spirit on the campus has been very good. There is a fine Christian 
atmosphere about the college. Many of our students have been G. I.s 
and are a very fine class of fellows. We have been taxed to the limit to 
take care of the men who have come. We have been somewhat handicapped 
for a lack of instructors, but this problem is clearing up.. The prospects for 
this coming year are brighter than ever. We are limited by facilities to 

79 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



house m6n at the present time. More women are also applying this year- 
Many new improvements are being made about the campus and in the 
buildings. New furnishings are being placed in both of the resident halls. 
The dining room and library and chapel are being decorated and lighting 
fixtures modernized. New courses and instructors are being added. This 
year we will extend our one million dollar campaign for new buildings and 
improvements. We are making rapid progress toward full accreditation. 
We solicit the full support in making McKendree College what it should 
become and by your help will speedily become. Dr. Bracy has proved him- 
self to be a very capable and competent president and leader in the con- 
ference. He is building goodwill for McKendree wherever he goes. Let us 
pray for him and the college that they may be a tremendous factor in 
Southern Illinois. 



REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT OF McKENDREE COLLEGE 

TO 

THE SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 

In Session At 

Granite City, Illinois 

Bishop Magee and Members of the Southern Conference: 

It is not possible in this brief report to give you in detail all the things 
that have been happening at McKendree. I shall endeavor to lift out those 
highlights of the past year for your serious consideration as I report on the 
progress of your College, and our plans for the days ahead. 

Enrollment 

The year 1946-47 saw a remarkable increase in college enrollments across 
the nation. McKendree shared in that increase. The enrollment for the 
year 1945-46 was 184 full-time students. The 1946-47 enrollment as sum- 
marized in our current catalog is as follows: 

Seniors 18 

Juniors 20 

Sophomores 30 

Freshmen 172 

Special 74 

Summer School 86 

Total 400 less 47 repeated names 

leaves the actual statistical enrollment for the school year 1946-47 as 353. 
Fifty-two percent of this number were veterans, and slightly in excess of 
one-half of these students were Methodists. Approximately one-tenth of 
our student body were engaged in or looking toward full-time Christian 
Service. 

The prospects for the enrollment for the coming year point to an even 
larger number of students. The people of Lebanon are responding in a fine 
way to our appeal for housing for students. I expect our enrollment to in- 
crease by at least fifty over last year. This will depend upon the housing 
facilities that are made available in Lebanon and the number of persons 
planning to commute. 

Faculty 

The following new faculty members have been added to the staff during 
the summer months and will assume their new responsibilities with the 
opening of school. 

Lewis B. Van Winkle, Dean-Registrar, is to succeed Dr. C. J. Stowell, 
who is being retained on the faculty as head of the Mathematics Department 



REPORTS 



and Veterans' Counsellor. Dean Van Winkle is a member of the Illinois Con- 
ference, has his A. B. from Illinois Wesleyan University, a B. D. from Gar- 
rett Biblical Institute, and an M. A. from Northwestern University in 
Counselling and Guidance. He served pastorates in the Illinois Conference, 
and was Chaplain in World War II. He was Dean of Martin Junior College 
in Pulaski, Tennessee. He has done further graduate study at Vanderbilt 
University. Dean Van Winkle will fill a most important administrative 
position on the Campus and will have much to do with the direction of Mc- 
Kendree's curriculum and guidance program in the days that are ahead. 

Chester Bagg of Webster Groves, Missouri, is to head the Voice Depart- 
ment for the coming year. Mr. Bagg has his Bachelor of Music from De- 
Paux and his Master of Music Degree from Northwestern University. He 
has outstanding success in his voice and choral work, having recently di- 
rected the combined choirs of fifty -two churches for the Southern Baptist 
Association which recently met in St. Louis. 

Miss Margaret Sapp of Centralia, Illinois, has been employed as Public 
School Music Supervisor. Miss Sapp has a lovely voice, comes from a Meth- 
odist family, and has a Bachelor of Music from MacMurray College, and at 
the end of next summer will have completed her work for the Master's 
degree from Chicacfo Musical College. She has had practical experiences in 
the public and high schools of Salem, Illinois. 

Meredith F. Eller has been secured to replace R. P. Rice, the Head of the 
Department of Philosophy and Religion, who resigned to accept a position 
at West Virginia Wesleyan University. Mr. Eller has his A. B., S. T. B., 
and his Ph. D. with a maior in Church History from Boston University. We 
are most fortunate in having a man of his scholastic background for our pro- 
fessor of Philosophy and Religion. 

Mr. Ewins Baskette has accepted the position as Librarian, lyir. 
Baskette is well-trained and experienced as a Librarian. He holds the A. B. 
desree from Vanderbilt University, the LL. B. from Vanderbilt University, 
and the Bachelor's Degree in Library Science f^om Columbia University. 
Additional work was taken at George Peabody College. 

Miss Elizabeth White Parks has been transferred from the field of 
English to teach speech and direct the public relations program of the 
College. She is to replace the Rev. F. C. Stelzriede as instructor in speech. 

Mr. Fred Fleming of Belleville, Illinois, is to teach Biology. Mr. Fleming 
has both the B. S. and M. S. degrees and is well-qualified in the field of 
Biology. He will do much to strengthen the Science Department at the 
College. 

Additional faculty members are needed before College opens this next 
week. Negotiations are under way and should be completed by September 
9th. 

It must be said that faculty members that are well-trained and fine 
Christian personalities cannot be had for the salaries that have been paid in 
McKendree in the days gone by. Our only hope is in raising our salary 
scale so as to be able to attract men and women of the caliber we want. We 
have made a good beginning this year. 

The College nurrhased a large eight room house and has made it into 
two apartments for Faculty members. We feel quite hapny that we have 
been able to provide these accommodations for two members of our staff 
and their families. 

Financial Situation 

McKendree's fiscal year closes May 15th. The fieures given below are 
based on the auditor's report of that date for the past fiscal year.

Improvements 

The reception rooms in the two dormitories are being renovated this 
week. These rooms will be completely redecorated and refurnished with 
attractive furniture. The Contract has been let for library repair, but is 
being held up at the present time because of a shortage of material. Eighty- 
four new library chairs have been purchased and are in the library for the 
opening of the fall semester. 

During the past year we have purchased new equipment for our 
kitchen — electric dishwasher, large size potato peeler, and fifty quart elec- 
tric mixer. 

Before McKendree can achieve her rightful place and be all that she 
should, every building on. the campus must be redecorated so as to make

REPORTS 



them attractive and cheerful. The Dining Hall and Chapel are next on our 
list. New lights for the Dining Hall, Library and additional indirect light- 
ing for the Chapel have been ordered. 

Religious Emphasis 

McKendree cannot compete with the State Universities or the tax sup- 
ported institutions. Our offerings must be so unique as to lift us out of 
this competition. The one thing above all other is that McKendree must be 
definitely religious — Christian in philosophy, ideals and in ethical practices. 

Our speaker for the week of Religious Emphasis this year is to be Dr. 
James Chubb from the Board of Evangelism at Nashville, Tennessee. He 
is to be on our campus from October 12 to 16. We are praying that this 
week will set a fine spiritual tone for our school year. 

New By-Laws 

This last Board of Trustees meeting saw a revision of McKendree's 
By-Laws. Notable among the revisions was this paragraph. I quote from 
Article II, Section I. "These Trustees shall be elected by ballot and approved 
by the Southern Illinois Conference." This is a most significant step. This 
serves to emphasize the fact that McKendree is not only a church -related 
college, but that most definitely it is a Methodist College under the auspices 
of a Board of Trustees approved by the Southern Illinois Conference of the 
Methodist Church. 



In accordance with the above provision, I submit the following to be 
approved as Trustees of McKendree College: 



F. C. Stelzriede

Radio Broadcast 

In addition to the monthly broadcast over the W E B Q Methodist Hour, 
McKendree is to present a series of weekly programs over W J B V, Belle- 
ville, beginning this month. Mr. Paul Wnrowski, Station Manager, has 
agreed to secure a line from Lebanon to Belleville so that with the com- 
pletion of the College studio within the year, three regular weekly broad- 
casts and eventually daily broadcasts can be made from the campus. 

Our Goal 
Our Goal is Accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges 
and Secondary Schools. We cannot call for this examination until we have 
our house in order. Certain conditions must be met. 

Our Scholarship Needs 

Local churches, Methodist Men's Groups, W. S. C S., and W. S. G. 
organizations can aid McKendree by offering scholarship aid. One church 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



this year is paying the ministerial tuition for two young men — $180.00. 
However, this only pays one-half tuition cost, since these young men re- 
ceive a ministerial scholarship of an equal amount. A layman in Southern 
Illinois has agreed to pay the tuition of a worthy student for the coming 
year. These are noble gestures on the part of such individuals. 

Million Dollar Campaign 

There are 80,000 Methodists in Southern Illinois. If those Methodists 
would become so concerned about McKendree as to give it $1000, our 
Million Dollar Campaign would be well along the way to success. We 
need at least $300,000, preferably $500,000, for a permanent endowment 
fund at McKendree. We need two new buildings — a Science Hall and a 
Gymnasium. At the present inflationary stage, it will take at least $500,000, 
for these and the completion of renovation work. 

Will the Methodists of Southern Illinois, who have for so long watched 
McKendree struggle — and who now have the opportunity of seeing McKen- 
dree really arrive — will these Methodists rally to the cause in this crucial 
hour in the history of the school? The answer depends on you who are here 
— the lay leaders and ministers of the Southern Illinois Annual Conference. 
You are the laison group between McKendree's possibilities and the great 
host of Southern Illinois Methodists. I covet your prayers for the success 
of this campaign. I covet your loyalty and your willingness to labor in 
behalf of McKendree — that all of us working together may be able to see 
our slogan, "A Million For McKendree," become an actuality. 

In order that I may have much needed assistance in this campaign, I 
am, with approval of the Executive Committee, asking the Bishop to ap- 
point the Rev. W. E. Bush as a Special Representative of McKendree Col- 
lege in its Million Dollar Campaign. 

I proprose that the months of September 9th to February 15th be used 
for cultivation period in the campaign, that sub-district group meetings 
be held in each of the four districts dealing with various phases of the 
campaign; that each minister preach on some phase of Higher Christian 
Education and the McKendree Million Dollar Campaign on a Sunday de- 
signated by the calendar committee; that the McKendree Campaign and 
Canvass be made in each local church- The dates suggested for campaign 
are February 15th to Easter Sunday. 

Conclusion 

I submit this report knowing that it is a most ambitious program, but 
it is with one thought in mind, that we may see the day when McKendree 
College is a recognized Member of the North Central Association, is accept- 
ed by the University Senate of the Methodist Church, — and that it is an 
endowed Liberal Arts College, a college distinctly related to the Southern 
Illinois Conference — "Christian without apology and Methodist with pride." 



Respectfully submitted, 

CARL C. BRACY, 
President. 
September 2, 1947. 



AREA PROGRAM CRUSADE FOR CHRIST 
CHURCH SCHOOL ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE 

THE CHALLENGE 

-To provide an effective program of Christian Education in every Church. 

-To increase the total enrollment in all Church Schools. 

-To lift the level of attendance at all sessions of the Church School. 

84 



REPORTS 



■ — To establish new Church Schools where needed. 

— To guide persons of all ages in their Christian growth so as to result 

— in full commitment to Jesus Christ and His way of life. 

— in the achievement of a Christian philosophy of life. 

— in active membership in and devotion to His Church. 

—in creative participation in building a Christian Society. 

TWELVE POINT PROGRAM FOR INCREASING CHURCH SCHOOL 
ENROLLMENT AND ATTENDANCE 

1- Appoint a Membership Chairman and a Committee. Center respon- 
sibility with them. Have them work with age group Superintendents. Re- 
port results to local church Board of Education and congregation. 

2. Follow up absentees. Form a Membership Committee or have a 
Secretary for Absentees to follow them systematically before the next Sun- 
day after the absence. 

3. Visit Unchurched Families and Church Members not attending 
Church School. The week of October 5 is suggested. Urge all to attend. 
Probably your WSCS would gladly help in this. 

4. In this visitation urge attendance at the Sunday morning Worship 
Service as an educational fundamental- Urge all year for adults and youth. 

5. Provide adult leaders for youth. A youth counselor, and organize 
an active youth Council. 

6. Provide new educational groups for young adults and adults when 
present groups do not meet the need. 

7. Improve the Adult Home Department. Appoint a Superintendent 
for this, also choose visitors to develop the list and carry the materials to 
them. 

8. Nursery children. Let no child in the community be forgotten if 
their parents are not adherents of another church. 

9. Secure new leaders- Have a definite plan for discovering and enlist- 
ing these. Offer a thorough course of training for officers, teachers, other 
leaders. 

10. Arrange other than Sunday Sessions. Such as vacation church 
school, parents groups, groups for children, youth, and adults. All of these 
should be counted as members of the Church School. Establish outpost 
classes in the community. 

11. Hold Worker's Meetings. Pastor and Superintendent of the School 
meet with the local Church Board of Education and other workers at least 
quarterly. Let this group set goals, make plans, note progress and give 
recognition to departments, and classes. 

12. Where the local Board of Education or Crusade Council is not or- 
ganized it should be done. 

Church School enrollment and attendance should be made the chief 
concern of the pastor and the Church School Superintendent in the last 
year of the Crusade. Every effort should be made to arouse the interest 
of the congregation, to enroll all new church members in the Church 
School, to maintain a good teaching and worship program for every ses- 
sion; to make good use of available space and equipment and plan to im- 
prove it. 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



REPORT OF THE MYF OF THE SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 

R. J. Weiss, Conference Youth Counselor 

The Methodist Youth Fellowship's of our Conference have enjoyed a 
wonderful year in their Christian quests, and have given an unusually 
fine expression of Christian Stewardship. 

In the Booth Festivals this year the Youth of our Conference gathered 
together 19,495.60 dollars worth of supplies for our Conference Institutions. 
The cash contributed by our youth in the Booth Festivals was $11,825.41. 
This is a very substantial increase over last year. We hope for even a 
greater contribution this year. 

The New Year's Watch night program of the Methodist Youth Fellow- 
ship was celebrated in a large number of the churches. With the youth 
this program is growing in importance. 

The Mid- Year Institutes were both inspirational and well attended. 
With a very few exceptions every sub-district conducted a Mid- Year In- 
stitute. The Mid-Year Youth Rally held at Centralia First Church was 
attended by more than 800 young people of our Conference. It was the 
most successful attempt of a Mid-Year Meeting for our youth. Rev. H. R- 
Bermett, Pastor of the Niedringhaus Memorial Methodist Church, gave 
two very inspirational addresses. Each Conference Youth Officer shared 
effectively in the rally. 

Our District Rallies were well attended. The programs were both 
challenging and inspirational. There were a number of young people who 
dedicated their lives to full time Christian Service. 

The Institutes were well attended, programs were well planned and 
the results were very encouraging. 

The Conference was honored by having its President, Paul Sims, chos- 
en as one of the sixteen Youth Delegates to the Oslo Conference. The re- 
sponse for financial aid for the expense of sending the delegate to this Con- 
ference was so well subscribed to that Paul was privileged to be included 
in the caravans which traveled through Poland, and other war torn coun- 
tries of Europe. 

The National Conference of the Methodist Youth Fellowship this year 
was held in Stockton, California. James Weiss, Vice-President of the 
MYF of our Conference, was the official delegate in the absence of Paul 
Sims. He was accompanied by Tom Davenport and Lewis Young, both vis- 
iting delegates. 

The Regional Conference, held at Clear Lake, Iowa, was attended by 
ten of our Conference Youth leaders and three adults. 

The Area Planning Conference is to be held at East Bay Camp, Bloom- 
ington, Illinois, September 11 through 13: We are hoping to have fifty (50) 
of our Conference, District, and Sub-District officers to attend this Con- 
ference. Those attending the Conference last year enjoyed the fellowship 
and planning, and recommend that Southern Illinois Conference be better 
represented this year. 

The Cleveland Conference, which will be an outstanding Youth Convo- 
cation, will be held December 30 through January 2. Our Conference quo- 
ta is one hundred-one (101) Youth and eleven (11) adults. We are hoping 
to fill our quota. 

The Methodist Youth Fund shows a fine increase over last year. The 
following amount was given by each District. 



REPORTS 



Carbondale District $ 663.25 

East St. Louis District 783.07 

Harrisburg District 1,073.01 

Olney District 1,062.75 

Total $ 3,582.08 

The goal for the Youth Fund is $10,000 for the Conference. This will 
provide $1500 return for the promotion of the Youth Work in the Con- 
ference. 

The budget for the coming year for Conference District, and Sub-Dis- 
trict work amounts to $1650. 

May we all look forward to a great Youth Program next year. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE OLD FOLKS HOME, 
LAWRENCEVILLE 

From August 31, 1946, to July 31, 1947 

Mr. President cind members of the Board of Directors of the Old Folks 
Home of the Southern Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church, I bring 
to you my third annual report as superintendent. I also bring greetings 
from our Large Family, including workers and members of the Home. 

We are truly thankful to God for His constant watch-care and guidance 
through another year. 

We wish to express gratitude for the service rendered by our staff, 
the Executive Committee, the Board of Trustees, the Board of Directors, apd 
all the pastors, churches and friends of the Southern Illinois Conference. 
We make special mention of the fine support given by the Youth Fellow- 
ship through the Booth Festival. The members of the Home deserve hon- 
orable mention for their fine spirit of cooperation, in making the Home the 
fine place that it is. 

We have held regular chapel services and have been honored by having 
such special visitors as Miss Ida Klingeberger, of India; Bishop C. D. 
Rockey, of India; Miss Sue Craig, Evanston, 111.; Bishop J. C. Broomfield, 
St. Louis, Mo.; Mrs. Alice Binstead, Cardiff, Wales, and Miss Ella L. Perry, 
Dehli, India. We are always glad to have visitors. 

We have visited many of the churches of the Conference during the 
year and greatly appreciate the fine fellowship of both pastors and people, 
this has been the source of much inspiration because of the kindness shown 
to me and the interest manifested in our Home. 

The population of the Home as of September 1, 1946, was fifty-six. 
During the year four have passed to their eternal Home and four new 
members have been received making a total membership of fifty-six at 
this date. The oldest one will be one hundred years old next March 8. 

The health of our members has been unusually good this year, we have 
had a large population, yet the deaths have been fewer. 

Some rooms in the Home have been redecorated among which were 
the kitchen, dining room and dish room. 

We have purchased two lots that are situated across Cedar Street North 
of the Old Folks Home. 

We have had an excellent year, but we are looking forward with great 
anticipation when we can render more and better service to more aged 

87 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



people. We realize the need of new and better methods for our Institution. 
Dr. Karl P. Meister expresses our needs along this line in his report to the 
National Convention of the Board of Hospitals and Homes, when he says: 
"New methods of care are being adopted but too many Hom,es are still 
operated on policies and principles introduced many years ago. One ob- 
solete method is the so-called 'minimum fee basis for admission.' Homes 
cannot operate on the idea that a person can be given life care for a mini- 
mum of anything less than the law of averages will require on the basis of 
the cost. Life expectancy must be taken into consideration as in the an- 
nuity field, and each applicant should be considered for admission on the 
merits of the case. The church cannot look longer with favor upon worn- 
out methods in the care of the aged but must develop a plan which is 
Christian and socially, economically and scientifically correct." In a leaflet 
Dr. Meister says: "The Church must assume its share of the responsibility 
in the problem of care for the aged. It must be kept in mind that Gov- 
ernment plans meet the physical needs only. Church plans add the 'plus' 
of Christian service. Without heart, there is no home." 

With God's help may we do all we can as a church and as individuals 
to meet this need. 

ORIN H. YOUNG. 



AMENDMENT TO THE BY-LAWS OF THE OLD FOLKS HOME 

Section 12. The superintendent of the Home shall be and he is hereby 
authorized to nominate an assistant superintendent of the Home when he 
deems such services are needed, the same to be elected by the Board of 
Directors; he is also authorized to engage the services of a secretary when 
he deems such services are needed. Both such employees shall be under the 
direction of the superintendent; both shall be members of the Methodist 
church and both shall be covered by the surety bond upon those officials 
of the Home handling funds thereof, and both shall be considered employees 
of the Home and shall be covered by any and all liability and compensa- 
tion insurance covering employees of the Home. 

The above Amendment was adopted by the Board of Directors of The 
Old Folks Home of the Southern Illinois Conference of the Methodist 
Church, in a called session at the seat of the Annual Conference, Granite 
City, Illinois, September 4, 1947. 



MY EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT AS SUPERINTENDENT OF THE 
ORPHANS' AND CHILDREN'S HOME 

August 19, 1947 

Mr. President, Members of The Board of Managers of The Orphans' 
and Children's Home, The Southern Illinois Conference, and Friends: I 
bring you greetings from our large family (children and workers). 

Words fail me when I would try to express our gratitude to God for 
blessings which have come to us in the Children's Home during the year. 
We do rejoice in the fact that God has led and blessed so richly all the 
efforts to which this Home is dedicated by the Southern Illinois Confer- 
ence, in this particular phase of service in the Kingdom of our God. 

In the success of the work here too much cannot be said in commen- 
dation for the loyalty and cooperation upon the part of the staff of work- 
ers in the Home, the Board of Managers, every church of the Southern 
Illinois Conference, contributing friends, and all who have shared by 
prayer or in any other way in the work of caring for dependent children 
who need care and help so much. 



REPORTS 



The shortage of the proper type of help with the Home carrying the 
maximum number of children at all times has meant added burdens upon 
all workers, and in most every instance, this added service has been sacri- 
ficially and graciously given, and I am persuaded that all have heard the 
Christ of God afresh, saying again and again, "Inasmuch as ye have done 
it unto one of the least of these, ye have done it unto me." 

We have been deeply grieved through the year because we were com- 
pelled to turn away so many needy and deserving children through the 
lack of means and workers to care for them. When the new building, 
which is now in process of construction, is completed, this will slightly 
relieve this situation. 

Health: God has blessed in a remarkable way, the Home has main- 
tained the excellent health record of the seven previous years. There 
has not been a single case of food poisoning, pnuemonia, serious accident 
nor death from any cause among the children or workers. We have an 
average population, including those of the administration building, of 
eighty-two (82) people, and it has not been necessary for our Staff Phy- 
sician, (Dr. W. G. Parker) to make a single call during the year, and only 
eight such calls during the past eight years. We have, however, made a 
number of visits to his office that Dr. Parker might examine, give vac- 
cinations, tonsillectomies, and all such medical care as needed. 

The Kiwanis again volunteered to care for the expenses of all surgi- 
cal and dental needs of our children. The Lions Club, in like manner, 
has cared for the expenses pertaining to the care of the children's eyes, as 
paying for their glasses, etc. Mrs. Maurice E. Smith has without any 
charge taken care of all X-Ray services needed for the children of the 
Home. All of this, we consider a most excellent gesture on the part of 
these good people. 

At the time this report is being written, the health conditions of the 
children as a whole are such as would be difficult to surpass by any group 
of equal age and number. 

Finance: The Children's Home, through the Unified Financial Plan 
for the Conference institutions, has received from our Conference Treas- 
urer from September 1, 1946 to July 31, 1947 (eleven months) $12,511.72. 
There was received from this same source last year (twelve months) 
$11,432.62, an increase of $1,079.10. Designated gifts from September 1, 
1946 to July 31, 1947 (eleven months) amounted to $7,071.54. From this 
same source for the fiscal year of twelve months of the preceding year, 
there was received $6,200.53, showing an increase from this source of 
$871.01. From all other miscellaneous receipts for the eleven months 
covering the period from September 1, 1946 to July 31, 1947, we received 
$26,989.03, compared to $19,196.45 dui-ing the preceding fiscal year of 
twelve months, showing an increase from this source of $7,792.58. Total 
receipts, from all sources for the eleven months of this fiscal year, were 
$46,572.29, compared with the receipts of the preceding fiscal year of 
twelve months, which were $36,830.60 giving us an increase of $9,741.69. 
We do rejoice in our thanksgiving to God that the good people of the 
Southern Illinois Conference have made such a fine increase in the support 
of their Children's Home. 

The Auditor's Report shows a balance in the hands of the Treasurer 
at the end of the ficsal year of $17,311.89, compared to $11,568.85 the pre- 
vious year, a gain of $5,743.04. 

The Board of Managers met May 2, 1947 and voted unanimously to 
proceed at once in the building of an additional unit to our Children's 
Home, said building to be 30 feet by 34 feet, two stories, fireproof of brick, 
steel and concrete, the first or ground floor to house the new bus and a 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



modern one-hundred bed size laundry. The second floor of this new 
building will be divided into four rather large rooms, to be used as three 
bedrooms or living rooms, and one of these rooms to be used as a loung- 
ing room by the workers on their "days off," with three clothes closets, and 
a bathroom. The building, when completed and equipped, is estimated 
to cost between $25,000.00 and $30,000.00. 

This makes the sixth consecutive year that we have been able to 
meet all bills every thirty days without borrowing money or drawing on 
our cash reserve. However, we may have to sell some of our securities 
before the new building is completed, but we are not going in debt. 

We sincerely appreciate the fact that some of our very finest Christian 
stewards, out of their abundance, make very excellent and necessary 
contributions to this work, and that many in a heart-touching and most 
sacrificial spirit gladly share their meager incomes for the relief of home- 
less and dependent children. We feel most keenly that every contribu- 
tion (large or small) coming to us for this work belongs to God and its use 
accounted for to Him as well as to the Southern Illinois Conference. 

I have no words nor means by which to adequately express my sin- 
cere appreciation to all who have shared in maintaining and forwarding 
the work here in the Children's Home. I am truly thankful to God for 
having supplied us with such a fine cooperative staff of Christian work- 
ers; were we to use great space and time in naming all and each of them, 
trying to tell their fine Christian virtues, quality of work, etc., the half 
could not be told. Too much praise cannot be given to those of our work- 
ers who have given many years of the most faithful, sacrificial type of 
service to our Children's Home. The records show that the tenure of 
service continues to grow longer, and while the wage scale is far below 
that which I would like to see, it too, has improved for the scale is now 
treble what it was eight years ago. 

We are grateful to Dr. Clark R. Yost, President of the Board of Mana- 
gers for the gracious and brotherly cooperation given, to Rev. Clyde Todd, 
our Pastor and Secretary of the Board of Managers, to V. E. Richardson 
and N. T. Jones, members of the Building and Ground Committee, to Dr. 
W. G. Parker, our Staff Physician, who has proven himself efficient, will- 
ing and liberal in his professional services for the children of the Home 
over a span of many years. 

I would like to recommend that V. E. Richardson and N. T. Jones, 
adding Oliver Jones, be re-elected as members of the Building and 
Grounds Committee, and that Dr. W. G. Parker be re-elected to the posi- 
tion of Staff Physician. At a call meeting of our Board of Managers May 
7, 1947, Alvin Lacey Williams was elected to serve out the unexpired term 
of John Lannin as the official attorney for our Home. I recommend his 
re-election for the ensuing year, and that he be made a member of the 
Executive Committee and Board of Managers. 

Without a single exception, we have had a most kindly reception 
from all the pastors and church leaders of the Southern Illinois Confer- 
ence as we have represented the Children's Home. The many county 
courts and court officials of various counties with which we have had deal- 
ings, have in every instance treated us personally, and the Children's 
Home and its work with the utmost respect and consideration. 

I could go on and x>n, trying to express my sincere appreciation and 
deepest gratitude to churches, organizations, individuals, etc. and still 
there would be a multitude of people and things of which I would like to 
write or speak, so may I close my thanksgiving by stating, "I include all 
in all that I have tried to say."

REPORTS-' 



As Superintendent of the Orphans' and Children's Home for the past 
eight years, Mrs. Sowers having served the same length of time as Secre- 
tai'y, Bookkeeper and Matron, not cnly have we given our best, we have 
given, our all to the task assigned to us during the eight years. We have 
spoken to churches, Bible schools, youth fellowship groups and other 
church organizations 1,474 times, traveled approximately 150,000 miles, 
not taken a single public collection, offering or subscription from the pul- 
pit during that time for the Home, I have, with God's help, tried to give 
them a word picture of what the Southern Illinois Conference is trying to 
do for the homeless and helpless children, and left it up to them to either 
hand their contributions to me after the service or send it direct to the 
Home by mail, asking them to remember the Home in their prayers, their 
contributions and wills or life insurance. Whatever has been accomplished 
through my efforts for the Children's Home is due to the marvelous help 
received from God in meeting the many and complex duties with which 
I have been confronted. Too much credit cannot be given to the fine loyal- 
ty and cooperation upon the part of the Board of Managers, the fine staff 
of Christian workers, both in and out of the Home, and to the children 
themselves who live in the Home, and for whom the Home is operated. 

In closing, let me say I have reasons to know "That they that wait 
upon the Lord shall renew their strength"; God's promises are true, "He 
is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we can ask or think"; 
and that He will supply our needs according to His riches and glory in 
Christ Jesus, as we love Him and keep His commandments.

ALTON MEMORIAL HOSPITAL 

Superintendent Report for year 1946-1947 

In common with all other institutions, Alton Memorial Hospital can 
report a very active but difficult year. However, I believe the year 1946- 
1947 has been eventful as definite progress has been made. 

As we read the reports and figures contained in our Annual report, I 
believe our board will find a feeling of pride that our Hospital is carrying 
out its philanthropic responsibility. 

We want our friends of Alton Memorial Hospital to know that while 
of necessity, much emphasis has been placed during the year upon improv- 

91 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



ing the business and professional efficiency of the Hospital and it will be 
the sole aim to make our Hospital a better instrument of service in the 
healing of the sick. 

The Medical Staff of the Hospital has been most gracious in their re- 
lations with the Hospital management. Their suggestions have been timely 
and very helpful. The officers elected for the ensuing year are: Dr. E. R. 
Quinn, President, Dr. C. D. Ehlert, Vice-president and Dr. D. D. Monroe, 
Secretary-Treasurer. The Staff membership now consists of about 77 
Doctors which are divided as follows: Honorary Staff 8, Consulting Staff 
19, Active Staff 17, and Associate Staff 33. 

The Hospital has again received the unqualified approval of the var- 
ious accrediting medical and surgical organizations. 

Our Nurses Training School has also received the approval of the State 
Department of Registration and Education. Because of the concentrated ef- 
forts of the chairman of our Board of Directors, Rev. F. M. Hedger, and the 
lowering of tuition requirements to a minimum we are taking in a class of 25 
students for Nurses Training September 8, 1947. The offering of scholar- 
ships and loan fund agreement will enable all girls to enter training who 
otherwise would lack the necessary requirements. Recruitment plans 
are now in the process of formation to show a movie to all interested 
youth groups in our congregations to stimulate further student enrollment. 
This movie has been used successfully by one of our Methodist Hospitals 
in the Central West. The title of it is "For You to Decide." It will be 
shown in conjunction with technicolor pictures of our hospital and its ac- 
tivities. 

During the past year many meetings have been held by the various 
committees of our Board of Directors because of many complex problems 
confronting our institution. These meetings have been a source of much 
counsel to me and have served as a media for the betterment of the Hos- 
pital, its Staff, Personnel and Community. 

The Executive Committee of the Board suggested the passage of a 
resolution which, I'm sure, will be ratified at our annual meeting, Monday, 
September 8, 1947, to the effect that the fiscal year of the Hospital be from 
January 1 to December 31 and further that the Annual Meeting be held 
the fourth Wednesday in the month of March. 

In view of the passage of this Amendment it was proposed that the 
present Board of Directors and its officers remain as such until its pro- 
posed Annual Meeting and suggest that this resolution be confirmed by 
Conference. 

On June 14, 1947, we had the honor of a visit and an inspection by Dr. 
Karl Meister, Executive Secretary of Methodist Hospitals and Homes. His 
advice was timely and many of his suggestions and recommendations for 
improvement have already been carried out leaving only minor recom- 
mendations for the ensuing year. 

Our White Cross Auxiliary comprising of about 450 members has been 
most active during the past year giving much of their time as well as 
financial assistance wherever needed. 

Our Pediatrics Department has been transferred to the new first floor 
Annex which was formerly occupied by Business Offices. This change 
gives the Hospital about 20 more Adult Beds. 

Because of the various changes and improvements effected, we believe 
our financial position will continue to improve. The results from opera- 
tions of the hospital during the past year indicate a small loss which has 
been offset by our generous other income donations. 



REPORTS 



Our relations with the Ministers and Laymen of the Southern Illinois 
Conference have been most cordial and their renewed interest in our 
Hospital has been deeply appreciated. 

This report is somewhat brief as I have given less than five months of 
supervision to our Hospital and I am looking forward to another year of 
still greater achievement and closer contact with the charges of the con- 
ference. 

With the foregoing in mind, I wish to read the following statistics for 
the year ended August 31, 1947, which will conclude my report. 



Respectfully submitted, 

HARRY F. TUBERGEN 
Administrator. 



HOLDEN HOSPITAL ANNUAL MEETING 

August 14, 1947 

The annual meeting of the Board of Directors of Holden Hospital 
Corporation was held August 14, 1947, in the parlor at the hospital at 
10:00 A. M. with Rev. G. E. Whitten, president of the Board presiding. 

The meeting was opened with a prayer by Dr. C. C. Hall, Chaplain of 
Holden Hospital. 

Those present were Mr. J. D. Dill, Mr. C. T. Houghten, Mr. C. E. Dill, 
Rev. G. E. Whitten, Rev. F. O. Wilson, Rev. E. U. Yates, Rev. Paul Brown, 
Dr. Glenn Sharp, Dr. C. C. Hall, Dr C. R. Yost, Mrs. Mark Woodley, :^rs. 
Arthur Lee, Mrs. S. S. Ritchey, Mrs. John F. Daniels, Mrs. Fred Nave, 
Mrs. J. D. Dill, Miss Mattie B. Pangburn and Mrs. Joe F. Van Natta. 

Di'. Whitten spoke briefly on the scripture "Believe thou on the Lord 
and He will direct thy path." He stated that God has wonderfully bless- 
ed Holden Hospital as an institution of healing. He said that as president 
of the Board of Directors of Holden Hospital he hadn't watched the work 
in the hospital for the past six years without appreciating the fine work 
of Dr. C. C. Hall, the Chaplain, and the splendid work of our Superin- 
tendent, Miss Mattie B. Pangburn. He stated that behind all of this fine 
work is the hand of God. He said that the hot weather brought him back 
in thought to 1938 when he was in Bethlehem and went up into the to- 
wer and saw the shepherds watching their sheep. The sheep seemed to 
know the voice of the shepherd and followed him. Even the lambs knew 
the shepherd and trusted him. He said, "Is it any wonder then that Jesus 
uses shepherd throughout His teachings?" He has certainly led us in our 
work in Holden Hospital. Rev. Whitten read the 23rd Psalm and comment- 
ed on it. He said, "Think of the care, love and protection of God." "The 
Lord has been the Shepherd of this institution." It is providence that we 
have a Chaplain, fine Superintendent and Board. In our work God is 
our shepherd and we have nothing to fear. 

Rev. Whitten stated that this was the last time he would preside at 
the Board meeting as he was going back into preaching after the Southern 
Illinois Conference meets in Granite City. 

The minutes of the Annual board meeting of September 5, 1946, were 
read and approved. 

Miss Mattie B. Pangburn, Superintendent of Holden Hospital, gave a 
splendid report covering her work for the past eleven months. Her re- 
port contained a most interesting comparison between the year 1940 and 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



1947 showing the gi'owth and development, of the various departments of 
the hospital. 

A motion was made by Rev. Yates and seconded by Mr. J. D. Dill that 
the report be accepted and the superintendent be congratulated on her 
fine work and splendid report. Motion carried. 

The treasurers report for the past eleven months ending July 31, 1947, 
was read and discussed by Mr. C. E. Dill, treasurer of Holden Hospital 
Corporation. His comparative statistics for the past 20 years were very 
interesting and enlightening. 

A motion was made by Mr. Houghten and seconded by Rev. Brown 
that the report be accepted and placed on file. Motion carried. 

Mr. J. D. Dill stated that Dr. John B. Benson when he was here for the 
bond burning ceremony July 17, 1947, suggested that we have a picture 
of Christ in the Hospital as this is a Christian institution. He stated that a 
picture of Christ had been sent to Holden Hospital from the Board of 
Hospitals and Homes and it has been framed and is ready to hang in the 
lobby. Mrs. O. E. Connett made the first donation toward framing. 

A motion was made by Rev. Yates and seconded by Mrs. Lee that Miss 
Pangburn, Dr. Hall and Mr. Dill be commended for having the picture 
framed and that a letter of thanks be sent to the Board of Hospitals and 
Homes for the picture. Motion carried. 

Dr. C. C. Hall spoke on his work as Chaplain of Holden Hospital and 
splendid work that is being done by the superintendent and her corps of 
fine workers. He stated that the work is really worth while and a hospital 
that maintains the services of a chaplain has a higher standing in its 
community. 

Mr. J. D. Dill stated that the services rendered by Dr. Hall and Miss 
Pangburn cannot be measured. He made a motion which was seconded by 
Dr. Yost that we render a vote of thanks to the Superintendent and 
Chaplain for their splendid work. Motion carried. 

A vote of thanks was extended to Mr. J. D. Dill and the members of 
the executive committee for their splendid work during the past year, by 
the board. 

Dr. Yost spoke of Mr. F. M. Hewitt, Vice-president of our board who 
passed away since our last meeting. He said that Mr. Hewitt's sacrificial 
services, his deepening and abiding interest in Holden Hospital would be 
long remembered. 

Mr. J. D. Dill, Chairman of the Executive Committee of Holden Hos- 
pital Corporation said that the executive committee is in complete agree- 
ment with the arrangements of our Chaplain. 

A motion was made by Mr. Dill and seconded by Rev. Brown that Dr. 
C. C. Hall be employed for another year as Chaplain of Holden Hospital 
as per agreement with the executive committee. Motion carried. 

A motion was made by Rev. Yates and seconded by Rev. Wilson that 
the minutes of the Executive Committee meeting be accepted and approved 
without reading. Motion carried. 

Mr. J. D. Dill was appointed to write an article for the local papers 
concerning the annual meeting and work at Holden Hospital. 

The following Committees were appointed by Rev. Whitten:

ary. He stated that the committee is grateful that all debts on Holden 
Hospital are paid.

A motion was made by Dr. Yost and seconded by Mr. J. D. Dill that 
the report of the finance committee be accepted and placed on file. Mo-

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EVANGELISM— SOUTHERN ILLINOIS 
CONFERENCE—YEAR OF 1947-1948 

I. A REVIEW OF THE YEAR OF EVANGELISM. 

1. Membership. 

Our Church has experienced a remarkable growth during the Year of 
Evangelism (1,021,210 new members). A fine spirit and method of pro- 
cedure has developed. Twice as many new members were received than is 
usual. 

2. New Churches. 

A total of 806 new churches were either organized or re-opened during 
the Year of Evangelism. We rejoice in this good record and ask that in our 
own Conference a careful study by the cabinet be made for the location and 
establishment of new churches during this year. 

3. Daily Devotions in Every Home. 

This major goal of the Year of Evangelism cannot be reported in actual 
figures. Much emphasis has been placed upon family altars throughout 
the whole of the year. 



REPORTS 



4. Fewer charges with no additions. 

One of the encouraging aspects of the Year of EvangeUsm is that the 
number of charges which did not win a single person to Christ on con- 
fession of faith was reduced from 3,360 in 1945 to 936 in 1946. 

II. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR OUR CONFERENCE EVANGELISTIC 
PROGRAM THIS YEAR. 

1. Visitation and Public Evangelism. 

We recommend a week of visitation evangelism in every charge (1) 
preceded by a careful survey of the community (2) and followed by a 
week of cultivation and spiritual guidance calls (3) which week is to be 
followed by a series of evangelistic services. By combining these two 
methods our evangelistic efforts will be more fruitful. 

2. Evangelistic training conferences. 

To assist pastors and laymen to become more effective in winning per- 
sons to Christ, our Board of Evangelism is projecting (1) our Fourth Annual 
Evangelistic Convention which will be held at Herrin, Illinois, on November 
17 and 18, (2) a Workshop on Evangelism for all men in the ministry for less 
than ten years, (3) a School of Evangelism in the spring and (4) a district- 
wide simultaneous visitation and public evangelism effort in the East St. 
Louis district. 

3. Assimilation of new members. 

It is nothing short of tragic for a person to be won to Christ and then 
not be trained for Christian churchmanship. We, therefore, recommend 
that training classes in church membership for children, youth and adtflts 
be held in every Church where new members are received. Children's 
classes should be conducted during Lent. Adult classes should be formed as 
soon as five new members are to be received. 

The new members should also be enrolled in Church School and Learn- 
ing for Life School. 

4. Cooperation with the Church School Advance. 

The Board of Evangelism pledges its cooperation to the Board of Edu- 
cation in emphasizing the Church School during this last year of the Cru- 
sade for Christ quadrennium. We will assume particularly the responsibil- 
ity of winning the parents to Christ and to enroll them in the Church School. 
We are asking each Chiu'ch to form a Parents Cooperation League in which 
the parents of church school pupils will promise to attend Church School 
and Church regularly, read the Upper Room to the family each morning, 
and enroll in Parent Training courses. 

5. Church Loyalty Crusade. 

October 5th is the first Sunday of the six weeks Church Loyalty Cam- 
paign suggested by the Board of Evangelism. Many have absented them- 
selves during the summer. This campaign when properly organized will re- 
claim their attendance. 

6. Approved Evangelists. 

We recommend the appointment of E. O. Allen as Conference Missionary 
Evangelist. 

We recommend as approved evangelists, E. C. Chastain and E. O. Hobbs. 

FARRELL D. JENKINS, Chairman. 
O. E .CONNETT, Secretary.

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



REPORT OF MISSIONARY-EVANGELIST 

This is our fourth report as Missionary-Evangelist of the Southern 
Illinois Conference. We are finding a great need throughout the Con- 
ference relative to helping the weaker churches and also many fields where 
new churches should be organized. 

Much of our work this year has been surveying. These new and 
neglected fields should be given a complete survey to find the many 
possibilities. Six months of this year has been given to Washington Park, 
in East St. Louis. December, January and February we surveyed that 
section which has a population of about 5000. We called at every home, 
making contact with about 60% of the people. Over 300 persons gave their 
preference as Methodist. A new church was organized. The Cress auto 
Parts Building is now being used for regular church services. A location at 
a cost of $1500 has been bought, ($800 has been paid on same), 46 members 
have been received, many of whom transferred from churches elsewhere. 
Eleven of them were converted and baptized. This new class is very anxious 
to move forward. They are now in a building program for the first floor 
of the new building at an estimated cost of $7000. They have also set the 
budget for the coming year based on a pastor's salary of $1000. 

We believe that there are many fields in the Southern Illinois Con- 
ference where this may be done. One of our great needs is a Home Mis- 
sionary Fund from which to draw in order to establish new churches. 

The following is a summary of our year's work: 

Conducted 9 revivals; planned and carried out 11 weeks of survey work; 
preached 159 messages; We have seen many turn to the Lord; Taught in 
50 Bible Classes; Visited 10 public schools; Drove 9048 miles in connection 
with the work; Made 1895 house calls, (which is better than an average of 
5 per day throughout the year.) Received salary, $3000; Expenses, $642.28; 
Raised for the Board of Evangelism, $635.15. 

We covet the prayers of the Conference in behalf of our work. 
E. O. ALLEN. 

CONFERENCE EVANGELIST REPORT 

"Evangelize or Fossilize" has been our motto for this past yeai- of 
work. We feel that "the hour is come" when Christians must evangelize or 
humanity is doomed to perish by its own hands from the earth. 

We have conducted 17 Evangelistic Crusades, preaching 325 times and 
ministering to the needs of over ten thousand people. There were 1009 
definite committments at the altar. 1560 children attended special services 
conducted for them. We have found the most fertile field to be among 
the Children and Youth. 

On the basis of Free-Will Offerings, we received $4495.00 for our 
services. 

REV. EUGENE C. CHASTAIN. 

This has been a rather strange year. I have preached only 315 times and 
have held only 11 revivals, yet all with good results. I have made 1200 
calls. Due to sickness, we have spent part of the year supplying at Cisne 
and Geff. We love the work better every day and ask for your continued 
prayers. 

GARRETT H. PHILLIPS 
Approved Evangelist. 

REPORT OF EVANGELIST E. O. HOBBS 

I have had a good year in evangelism. I have conducted 13 revivals 
for a total of 28 weeks; have preached 300 times, and have made many per- 
sonal calls. All these revivals were in Methodist churches. I have had a 
total of 225 professions of conversion and sanctification, and great numbers 
have been quickened and revived. A number have united with the church 
as a result of the revivals.

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF TOWN AND COUNTRY WORK 

As Secretary of Town and Country Work, I bring you my first Annual 
Report. I have given considerable time and study this year to the problems 
of the Rural Church, its ministers and laymen. The work of your Secretary 
has been of a promotional nature. We feel that this is the most vital program 
our church has ever launched. If we help the Rural Church solve its prob- 
lems, we will solve a lot of the problems of Our Conference and of even 
the world. 

I have attended all District Conferences and Set-up meetings of our 
Conference, speaking in the interest of my department and distributing the 
available printed material of our Commission in New York. I have rep- 
resented your Conference in a number of meetings of the Illinois Church 
Council for Rural Life and Rural Youth. Through the cooperation of the 
Dean of the School of Ministerial Training we were fortunate in having the 
services of Rockwell C. Smith as a Special Lecturer this summer. His 
messages were a help and an inspiration to the men of our Town and 
Country Churches. 

One of the finest meetings of the year was the National Rural Life 
Conference held in Lincoln, Nebraska, July 29, 30, 31. Under the auspices 
of the Council of Bishops and the Department of Town and Country Work 
of the Board of Missions, eight Commissions prepared special advance 
studies to present to the Conference. The Conference was the first such 
ever held by the Methodist Church, and it indicated something of the grow- 
ing importance of the Rural Church in our denomination's thinking and 
program. Through the cooperation of the churches of our Conference a sum 
of $785 78 was raised which sent a delegation of twelve (12) to the National 
Rural Life Conference in Lincoln; the district superintendents, one urban 
pastor, one rural pastor and one rural layman from each district. In ad- 
dition to this group, the W. S. C. S. sent a delegate, and the Board of Edu- 
cation sent its Secretary, and assisted the Youth Group in sending a Rural 
Youth Delegate. Your Secretary acted as Chairman of the delegation, and 
paid expenses out of the money allowed by the Committee on World Service 
and Finance. There were sixteen delegates in all. 

We make the following recommendations: 

1. That Rural Life Sunday, the Sunday nearest Rogation Day, be held 
in all our churches. On that day the major emphasis should be on the 
seed, the soil, God's gifts, and man's labor. Service programs may be 
found in our new Book of Worship, or ordered direct from Dr. Elliott Fisher, 
150 Fifth Ave., New York 11, N. Y. 

2. That each Rural Pastor join the Rural Fellowship. For $1.00 per 
year you will receive your bulletin and the Christian Fellowship Bulletin, 
both of which will give helpful ideas and articles on rural problems and 
opportunities. Send your money to the Editor, John B. Howes, Westminster, 
Md. 

3. That we take as our major objective this year the problem of 
ministerial support for the Rural Pastor. Our greatest need at present is a 
minimum salary level. The city churches are strong enough to speak for 
themselves and they need no champions. These churches in the small 
towns, in the villages and along the country roads have been weakened 
through the years, and they need a voice to be heard all across Southern 
Illinois, which shall recall men to the strength and influence of these little 
country churches. A complaint that is heard on every hand is to the effect 
that Methodist ministers move too often. Actually, we are tending toward 
longer and more settled pastorates in the better paying charges and toward 
more frequent moves in the rural areas. When there is a shortage of 
preachers the rural areas suffer first. Assignment, tenure, and support 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



are bound up closely together. No amount of pious talk alone by Church 
leaders will solve these problems. It is our responsibility. We have talked 
about it for years. It is the feeling of some that responsible agencies of 
our Conference need to keep certain funds within the bounds of our Con- 
ference for stabilizing ministerial support. I plead with you for the sake 
of the men of your Conference who are living on a starvation salary, that 
you mobilize and organize for action.

Secretary of Town and Country Work. 



RECOMMENDATIONS FROM BOARD OF EDUCATION 

TENTATIVE PROGRAM FOR THE YEAR 

1. That we make it our definite policy to work in the direction of 
Intermediate Institutes, beginning with one or more this year, if possible. 
And that we start a sinking fund for a Conference Camp Site and that a 
definite amount of reserve to be retained in the treasury, to be determined 
by the Executive Committee of the Board of Education, before any is taken 
out for a sinking fund. 

2. That a printed News Sheet, instead of a mimeographed sheet, be 
sent out from the office of the Executive Secretary to Pastors, Superin- 
tendents, and other church leaders. 

3. That a committee from the Board of Education investigate our in- 
terests in the Student Christian Foundation at Carbondale, the following 
to serve as the committee: C. H. Todd, F. E. Harris, and Clyde Clark.

part of youth and that a list of these names be kept in the files of the 
Executive Secretary's office. 

5. We urge that our pastors and church school officers and teachers 
use our Methodist literature and especially recommend our new literature. 

6. We recommend that the askings for Rally Day fund be a minimum of 
a sum equal to 10 cents per enrolled members in the Sunday Church School.

the Church Schools. 

11. We also urge the complete organization of the Young Adult Work

Standard for the entire Conference, that this standard be used in each 
church.

GENERAL REPORT OF CONFERENCE LAY ACTIVITIES 

Annual Conference — September, 1947 

Throughout the past year Methodist men have placed emphasis on the 
third phase of the Crusade for Christ — "Stewardship." We have tried to 

102 



REPORTS 



show the importance of stewardship in the many other phases than that of 
material wealth alone. 

The basic principle of stewardship is: 

"All that we have and all that we are belong to God; our time, our 
talents, our resources and our opportunities are all a trust from God 
to be used according to a divine plan." 

Lay Activities throughout the Conference have included: 

1. Regular monthly meetings of Methodist Men's clubs in many 
churches. Much time and program has been given on the various phases 
of Stewardship. 

2. Men have been urged to give of their time, money and talents to 
the Church. 

Men's groups have aided in increasing the number of Christian Advocate 
Subscriptions in the home. 

4. Some groups have made an annual affair of a banquet to their ladies. 
Fellowship suppers for the men have been held. 

5. Some groups have held open forums discussing the various phases 
of stewardship. 

6. Sunday evening testimonies have been led by some groups. 

7. Group Meetings and Banquets have been held with representation 
from each church in the area. 

8. Laymen's Day Observances — throughout the Conference with lay- 
men in complete charge of the Sunday Service in most churches. 

9. Annual Spring Rally: 

In May each District participated in a Spring Rally. With similar pro- 
grams and the same speaker for each occasion a unity of thought and pur- 
pose was brought about. Approximately 2500 men attended these oc- 
casions. 

10. Another special activity of the year included the presentation of 
three minute talks preoared by outstanding laymen of the country and 
presented by laymen of the local churches on Sunday mornings for a three 
months period. 

Annual Conference Meeting and Banquet: 

At this time Methodist men throughout the Conference have the op- 
portunity of coming together for Christian fellowship. In our Conference 
meetings we share our program thoughts and ideas of the past year. We pick 
up new ideas for the coming year. With representation from throughout 
the Conference we close a year's active program. 

Methodist men have participated in all phases of the Crusade for Christ 
and will meet the challenge of the new year. 

ARTHUR KNAPP, Conf. Lay Leader. 



REPORT OF THE WORLD PEACE COMMITTEE 

The Christian people of the world are exceedingly inactive in one of ihe 
world's major problems — World Peace. We believe it is not so much in- 
difference or lack of concern as it is the feeling of inability. But World 
Peace will have to come through Christian principles and policies and tlie 
Christian people must lead the way. And all the Christians of the world 
working together, \mder God, can bring about the reality of a World Peace. 

During this week, September 2-8, there is a Conference of International 
Peace Organizations at St. Cygere, Nyon, near Geneva, Switzerland. The 

103 



SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



Executive Secretary of the Commission on World Peace of the Methodist 
Church, Dr. Charles F. Boss, Jr., is the elected delegate to represent the 
National Peace Conference of the United States. Let us give this Confer- 
ence our interest and prayers, and we should follow up and do whatever 
we can to cooperate in the plans they make at this Conference. 

We urge the ministers and laymen of the Southern Illinois Conference 
to be aroused to our responsibility as individuals, World Peace Committee^, 
churches and groups to more peace education by sermons, addresses, study 
classes, forums, discussion groups, dramas and visual education. Any pos- 
sible action by individuals and groups to help in World Peace should be 
taken. 

We suggest especially the attention of all our Methodists to the work 
of the United Nations. All people concerned recognize its weakness. But it 
is the only International Instrument we have, and until we have a better one, 
we should try to make the United Nations better, and give it our support. 

We have asked the Commission on World Service and Finance for fifty 
dollars for the Conference Committee to use next year in promotion ac- 
tivity. The Commission on World Peace of the Methodist Church gives 
many suggestions for action during the year to the Chairman of the Con- 
ference Committee. Many of these are calls for immediate wires ond 
letters to governmental representatives. 



REPORT OF THE WORLD PEACE COMMITTEE 

There have been many evidences of "listening" to these communications 
on the part of our governmental leaders during this last year. 

The pamphlet "Register Christian Opinion" gives the names of the 
members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives arranged 
bv States and Congressional Districts and the Standing Committees of the 
Senate and House of Representatives of the United States. It may be secured 
free from the Commission on World Peace of The Methodist Church, Rev. 
Charles F. Boss, Jr., Executive Secretary, 740 Rush St., Chicago 11, Illinoi.s. 

We believe the Methodist position as to conscientious objectors is sound 
and Christian (See Discipline paragraphs 2010, 2017-18), and that the Meth- 
odist who is a sincere conscientious objector ought not to have any feeling 
of suspicion or ill will be held against him. 

We believe we ought to go on record as a Conference and urge in- 
dividuals and churches to speak out against compulsory military training. 
Experience has proven that voluntary enlistment will provide the men we 
need for military service. In this atomic age the solution is certainly not 
that each male citizen of America will be trained in a military way. It 
would take only a few years for all the skills of the physical training of each 
man to be erased. We do not believe the militaristic viewpoint and 
philosophy of life at the very impressionable age of youth is the best thing 
or the thing needed, and the conditions in which our youth will be placed in 
compulsory military training will not be the most morally and spiritually 
wholesome. 

We urge our Conference to become alert to every means of World 
Peace.

RESOLUTION ON TEMPERANCE 

Whereas, the Hquor traffic is one of the greatest sins in the world 
today. It is more ruthless than ever before, and our conditions are much 
worse than under the old saloon regime. The liquor crowd is spending 
vast sums of money to educate the rising generation to the drink habit, and 
to popularize it among the women and youth of the land', and 

WHEREAS, the liquor traffic opposes everything for which the orthodox 
church stands, and is for everything that the church is against. It winks 
at crime and lawlessness, and defies righteousness and holiness, and 

WHEREAS, the Anti-Saloon League of Illinois is now actively carrying 
on an aggressive war against the liquor traffic, comprehending agitation, 
education and legislation under the capable leadership of Dr. Dexheimer 
and his assistants. 

Therefore, be it resolved that this Southern Illinois Annual Conference 
in its 1947 session go on record as being unitedly opposed to the whole liquor 
traffic. That we stand for temperance in things that are wholesome and for 
total abstinence as against moderation in the use of alcoholic beverages, 
narcotics and nicotines. That we continue on with untiring efforts toward 
the complete extermination of beverage alcohol. That we cooperate with 
the Anti-Saloon League of Illinois; the W. C. T. U., and our own Methodist 
Temperance board in this fight against the liquor traffic. 

We urge local options wherever and whenever possible, and the elec- 
tion of officers in every official position who are dry. 

We further urge a complete Temperance educational program in our 
church schools at least once a quarter, and that our ministers in both 
large and small churches preach temperance sermons occasionally; and that 
every Methodist member do all in his power to set a right example from 
the standpoint of temperance before sinner. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GLENN F. SHARP, Chairman. 



RESOLUTION 



Whereas through the years it has been the practice of this Conference 
to print the Auditors' Reports of Organizations and Institutions, Treasurers, 
etc., in the Conference Journal, and; Whereas, the publication of such re- 
ports costs the Conference the sum of $50.00 or more annually. Therefore be 
it resolved that these reports of the Auditors shall be filed with the Con- 
ference Secretary for his permanent files, and that the names of such Or- 
ganizations, Institutions, Treasurers, etc., shall be published in the Confer- 
ence Journal for the current year accompanied with the notation that the 
full Audit report of such organizations, institutions, treasurers, etc., shall 
be available for the proper use of such person or persons as may require 
them for the use of the Conference or the Cabinet.

REPORTS 

REPORT OF BOARD OF MISSIONS AND CHURCH EXTENSION 

The Board of Missions and Church Extension recommends: 

1. That each pastor preach frequently on the cause of World Service 
and distribute the literature published by the Home Board and call atten- 
tion to the great need of the world today. 

2. That World Service Sunday be properly observed in each Church 
School the Fourth Sunday of each month and that an offering be taken at 
that time. 

3. That W. L. Hanbaum be appointed Conference Missionary Secretary. 

O. H. SWEITZER, President 
A. B. CLODFELDER, Secretary. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS 

Under the blessing of Almighty God, many factors have contributed to 
the excellence of this session of the Annual Conference. 

1. In view of the housing situation, the entertainment of the Conference 
has been little short of wonderful. 

2. The setting of the services has been made beautiful by reason of 
the floral offerings from the Tri-City Ministerial Association and the 
Blossom Shoppe. 

3. The ministry of music by the organists, pianists and choirs of the 
Tri- Cities has been truly inspiring. 

4. The early morning Upper Room Prayer Service, under the auspices 
of the Board of Evangelism, has no doubt helped to set the high spiritual 
tone of the various services. 

5. The thoughtful care of the pastors and people of the cooperating 
churches has made our stay in the Tri-Cities wholly delightful. 

A special word of praise is due the ladies and men of the church for their 
labor of love in preparing delicious food and refreshments for the many 
visitors. 

The Conference is especially indebted to the City Library as head- 
quarters for the Financial and Statistical forces of the Conference and the 
Y. M. C. A. for a counsel room for Bishop Magee and the Cabinet. 

We have been helped by the sermons and the administration of our 
resident Bishop, J. Ralph Magee, and by the earnest addresses and sermons 
by all who appeared on the program. 

We are grateful for the many advances in Kingdom work as shown by 
the financial and statistical reports, and we dare to believe that the gains 
will be even greater as we bring the Year of Stewardship to a close, and 
enter the Year of the Crusade For Christ In the Church School.

Our service here is a very pleasant experience and most rewarding. 
I am fortunate to have in Dr. E. L. Cook, the Manager of this hospital, a very 
faithful Methodist. He is most cooperative, and likewise faithful in his 
attendance at Chapel Services. The men are most grateful and most re- 
sponsive to the call of the gospel. The Chapel attendance would thrill the 
soul of any servant of God.

We Memorialize the General Conference of the Methodist Church that 
because of the increased propagandizing of the Roman Catholic faith in rural 
areas through missions and disemmination of tracts we urge the General 
Conference to call for 500 men who will spend their full time in evangelistic 
missions in needy areas, such as rural towns and urban communities 
where Protestantism needs to be propogated. These men shall be under the 
direction of the General Board of Evangelism^ A church wide campaign 
shall be started to provide the money for their salaries. •

ACCOUNTANT'S REPORT 

Mount Vernon, Illinois, August 7, 1947. 
Board of Managers, 
Orphans' and Children's Home, 
Mount Vernon, Illinois 
Gentlemen: 

I present herewith in the following comments and schedules the report 
of my examination of the cash receipts and disbursements records of the 
Orphans' and Children's Home of the Southern Illinois Conference of The 
Methodist Church, located at Mount Vernon, Illinois, for the eleven months 
ending July 31, 1947. 

Bank reconciliations with the treasurer's records were made and the 
balance in the bank in the amount of $17,311.89 as shown by the treasurer's 
records are correct. 

The following bonds and stocks owned by the Home were inspected in 
the superintendent's safety box at the First National Bank, Mount Vernon, 
Illinois. 

Mount Vernon Loan and Building Stock $ 2,500.00 

King City Federal Savings and Loan Stock 2,600 00 

U. S. Government Bonds (Cost) 31,448.00 

$ 36,548.00 
Add: Treasurer's cash balance 17,311.89 

Total $ 53,859.89 

I believe the attached schedule of receipts and disbursements is clear and 
easily understood, and to the best of my knowledge and belief correctly 
reflects the cash transactions of the Orphans' and Children's Home, Mount 
Vernon, Illinois, for the eleven months period, September 1, 1946, to July 
31, 1947.

SOUTHERN ILLINOIS CONFERENCE 



Robinson, Illinois, August 25, 1947. 
Rev. F. W. Schwarzlose, Treasurer 
Southern Illinois Conference 
Board of Education 
Staunton, Illinois 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to engagement we have audited the books of the Board of 
Education of the Southern Illinois Conference for the fiscal year ended 
August 7, 1947. 

In connection therewith we have examined and tested the receipts from 
E. W. Barrett, Treasurer of the Southern Illinois Conference and have 
traced them to the depository. All disbursements originate with the 
Executive Secretary, who issues an order to the Treasurer, who in turn 
draws the check for the disbursement. All orders and cancelled checks 
were compared and found to be in order. 

The accompanying statement was reconciled to the bank's balance of 
August 1, 1947. 

Outstanding Checks: 

No. 74 $115.00 Total Outstanding $ 783.13 

No. 77 75.00 Our Balance 5,827.64 

No. 78 150.00 

No. 79 94.80 $ 6,610.77 

No. 80 120.63

No. 84 25.00 

No. 85 104.97 $ 6,610.77 

$783.13 

The Bank Account is correctly in the name of "Southern Illinois Con- 
ference Board of Education, F. W. Schwarzlose." It is in the St. Clair Na- 
tional Bank, Belleville, Illinois, and the bank's statements were audited 
personally by me. 

The Treasurer's Report given at the Annual Board Meeting of the Board 
of Education has been thoroughly examined by me and found to be correct. 
It is therefore being used verbatim as my report. 

Excellent cooperation was shown by the Treasurer in submitting his 
books and all of his records, and he is again to be commended upon his ef- 
ficient and accurate work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) ROBERT DAVIS,

MEMOIRS 

HENRY IDEL 

Rev. Henry Idel was born January 3, 1874, at Owensville, Mo., and de- 
parted this life December 18, 1946, at Huegely, 111., thus reaching the age 
of 72 years, 11 months and 16 days. He was converted in an old fashioned 

revival meeting in early life and united 
with the German Methodist Church. 

As a young man he felt the call of 
God to preach the gospel. In answer 
to this call he entered Central Wesleyan 
College at Warrenton, Mo., where he 
worked his way through college. In 
June, 1901, he was graduated from the 
Theological Department. In September 
of the same year he entered the St. 
Louis German Methodist Conference and 
his first appointment was a home mis- 
sion field at Huntsdale, Mo. On Decem- 
ber 20, 1905, he was united in mar- 
riage with Amelia Leonard, of Beards- 
town, 111., and they were privileged to 
labor together in the active pastorate for 
35 years, and 11 years in the retired 
relation. Thus their happy wedded life 
and active work of the ministry ex- 
tended for 41 years. 

Mr. Idel served various churches in 
the German Methodist work with much 
success and witnessed some gracious re- 
vivals, seeing many souls saved and the 
work of the kingdom built up. At one 
time he served as pastor at North Prairie and Hoyleton for 4 years. 

In 1925 the German work merged with the English Methodist Church 
and Rev. Idel continued in active service for 11 years more. He spent 35 
years in the active ministry. In 1936 he took the retired relation and located 
permanently at Huegely, 111., where they have lived until his translation 
to our Heavenly Home on Wednesday, December 18, 1946, at 5 o'clock. 

During his retired relation he was always very active in church and 
Sunday School and seldom missed a service, even going beyond his physical 
strength up until the second Sunday before his home-going. 

Besides his bereaved wife and true companion, he leaves to mourn his 
loss, one brother, three sisters and other relatives and many friends. 

Funeral service was held on Saturday, December 21, 1946, at 2:09 p. m., 
in the North Prairie church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Ray Brown, 
assisted by Dr. L. S. McKown, Rev. A. W. Hendrix, Rev. Carl Arnold and 
Rev. Gail Hines. Burial was in the North Prairie cemetery.

MEMOIRS 




ALBERT RICHARDSON RANSOM 

Albert Richardson Ransom, son of Rev. Albert and Sarah Richardson 
Ransom, was born in the Methodist parsonage, at Trenton, 111., on September 
29, 1885. His father, a pioneer preacher, was a charter member of +he 
Southern Illinois Conference. After the 
father's retirement, they moved to New- 
ton, where Albert spent his boyhood 
days, until he entered the ministry. After 
preparing for the ministry in several 
schools, he made a trip to the Holy Land 
in 1907. This trip proved of great edu- 
cational value to him. He was an ex- 
tensive reader throughout his ministry, 
taking great pride in his library. 

He joined the Southern Illinois Con- 
ference in 1907. He was ordained Deacon 
in 1909 and Elder in 1911. McKendree 
College honored him with a Doctor of 
Divinity degree. He completed forty 
years in the ministry, having served the 
following charges: Wheeler, Hutsonville, 
Bone Gap, Altamont, Effingham, Mur- 
physboro, Belleville First, Harrisburg, 
Cairo, Olney, Fairfield First, Edwards- 
ville St. John and Eldorado First. He 
was a member of General Conference in 
1936. He was elected to Jvirisdictional 
Conference in 1940, and in 1944. For five 
years, up to 1943, he was the dean of 
the School of Ministerial Training of 
the conference. 

Dr. Ransom's contribution to the Kingdom of God, through the maliy 
avenues of service in the Church, has been great. He took an interest in all 
community affairs that were for the betterment of humanity. He had a spe- 
cial interest in the work of the American Bible Society. He took sick nine 
months before his death, but, as his doctor said, "the Lord touched his body, 
so that he was able to carry on his work to finish out the conference year." 
He preached his last sermon on the last Sunday before conference. He took 
quite ill after preaching this sermon. The end came on the first day of the 
1947 conference. His going was announced at the close of the night service, 
at which Bishop Magee spoke. Dr. Ransom's name was on the program to 
pronounce the benediction, and when his death was announced instead, a 
wave of real sorrow passed over the vast crowd. The community of El- 
dorado thought so highly of Dr. Ransom that all the business houses were 
closed for two hours during the funeral. 

In 1907 he was married to Miss Catherine Clark, of Newton, who sur- 
vives. For forty years they enjoyed life together, with Mrs. Ransom prov- 
ing a charming mistress of the parsonage and a help-meet in the work of 
the ministry in every sense of the word. The sons have a challenging ex- 
ample of a good father to remember. They are: Fletcher C. Ransom, a 
lawyer of Decatur; Dr. Gilbert T. Ransom, a physician of Fairfield; and 
Albert R. Ransom Jr., a chemist of Nashville, Tenn. He leaves three 
daughters-in-law whom he adored. 

The funeral was held at First Church, in Eldorado, at 10:30 A. M., Sep- 
tember 5, 1947. A second service was held at the Newton Church, at 3:00 
P. M. Rev. M. C. Foltz, a very close friend, preached the sermon at both 
places. Others assisting were: Rev. C. R. Yost, Rev. F. F. Otto, Rev. W. L. 
Hanbaum, Rev. N. C. Henderson, and Rev. Paul Ott. Interment in Grace- 
land cemetery at Newton.

SARAH ANN LEYERLE 

Sarah Ann Dennison was born June 10, 1869, departed this life June 25, 
1947, age 78 years and 15 days. 

At the age of 16 years, she was united in marriage with Dr. A. C. Rags- 
dale, and to this union five children were born, three of them have pre- 
ceded her in death. At the age of twelve years she accepted the Lord Jesus 
Christ as her Saviour and united with the Presbyterian Church. Following 
her first marriage, she transferred her membership to the Methodist Church 
in which she remained a loyal, devoted member until her transfer to the 
Church Triumphant became permanent. 

A lovely, congenial home was established at Metropolis, Illinois, where 
Dr. Ragsdale was highly esteemed and enjoyed a large practice. 

Following the death of Dr. Ragsdale she was married to the Rev. L. M. 
Leyerle. She immediately entered into the duties as Mistress of the Par- 
sonage and in the leadership of her Church. Truly can it be said that she 
was recognized as Queen in both homes that she graced so beautifully. Now 
she has received the crown of Eternal Life in that home, which has been in 
course of preparation for many years. Her Christian life portrayed in a most 
beautiful manner as she submitted herself to the most intense suffering 
without murmur or complaint, always in a spirit of prayer. Truly can we 
say, she is at rest where there shall be neither pain nor suffering. Write it 
in letters of gold. Write it upon the face of the sun and spell it with stars 
across the darkest night of thy sorrows, so that all may read it. WrUe it 
in unfading letters of faith upon thy memory, O suffering child of God, vhou 
shut-in ne, languishing on thine bed of pain, truly art thou now an in- 
habitant of the City where all former things have passed away and pain 
forever banished. 

There is left to mourn her departure, her devoted husband, the Rev. 
L. M. Leyerle; two sons, namely, the Rev. John L. Raesdale. Pastor of the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church of New London, 111., and Wm. Edward 
Ragsdale, of California; thi'ee step-children, namely, Mrs. Mabel Davis, 
Norris City, 111., Mrs. Beatrice Bandermen of St. Louis, Mo., and Harvey 
Leyerle. of Steritz, 111., together with 15 grandchildren and several great 
grandchildren. Two sisters remain, Mrs. Will Newlin, of West Frankfort, 
111., and Mrs. Rosa Booth, of Marion, III, together with a great host of 
friends. 

Funeral services were held at Big Prairie Methodist Church with 
interment at Metropolis, Illinois.

Aurora, for 22 years. As house mother of the nurses' home at Memorial
